An out of the ordinary job

I love jobs that are different to the norm and recently I spent a couple of days working on a project that I can honestly say I have never done before for a client, although I had done a similar shot once for my own portfolio.

We all get something different out of it and I thought it was time to share some of the things that the kids love. Freedom!
