In the very early 1970s I first photographed a young would-be model called Jo Karslake from South Benfleet. She lived with her parents and siblings in the Old Vicarage there, when I took her out to photogenic places in the area. We were at one of my favourite locations, Hadleigh Castle ruins, trying to add to her portfolio, when a grey squirrel tried to steal the act. It was certainly not shy, as for a moment it actually turned side-on to look like a squirrel should. There was no time to arrange Jo’s outfit, which clung to her in the breeze and as a fashion shot it was a flop, but I liked the momentary and very human reaction of the young girl. Later the model made a much-publicised marriage and the Stones of her acquaintance were Rolling rather than static as at the castle. You may even have seen her on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.
