The wonderful dimpled rear of Monika Ringwald (Thyssen) as she poses naked next to a Rolls Royce. The photo comes from a large collection of contact sheets of Monika, but of course the photos themselves were taken by Terry Sparks. If memory serves me right the Rolls Royce belonged to none other than Russell Gay himself, but not sure how Terry managed to borrow it for this shoot 😉
Monika Ringwall taken by Terry Sparks down on a beach in Bournemouth in 1971 and from a huge set of images of Monika posing for Terry. This is a more exposed shot on Monika posing on the beach than some of her other posts and the panties have gone to reveal her bushy delights below. It looks a little exposed on the the beach, but thankfully it was the summer and quiet so Monika could show all without getting too cold! The big necklace was obviously a favourite of Terry’s to use as a prop as it pops up several times on different models 🙂
Marianne Morris (Vicki Pascale), Venetia Day and Dinah Challen (Linda Rome) by Terry Sparks taken on a beach in Rhodes in 1971. A fab shot of all three as they lay out naked on the sea edge enjoying the sun. I’m not sure if Dinah is looking at the camera or eyeing up one of those cold bottles of Coke, as I’m sure it was hot thirsty work laying there like that! One also assumes the single bottle of beer was for Terry?
I now have many more shots of these three taken by Terry in Rhodes, thanks to a fabulous collection of original contact sheets I’ve acquired of Terry’s work, of which there is plenty more to come!
Denise Merton taken by Terry Sparks in November 1971 posing sat on the bed with a familiar floral shawl type thing. Now I say this a lot on this blog as my memory seems to get worse, but I’m sure I’ve seen Denise before somewhere, other than all the images I now have of her! A stunning model with a great figure and long flowing hair I’m sure she appeared in numerous publications, but I just can’t think where?
Another wonderful Terry’s treasure and if you’re wondering about the title, it’s a reference the the UK comedy show called The Mrs Merton Show, which was a mock talk show starring comediene Caroline Aherne as the elderly host Mrs Merton.
A new solo image of Venetia Day by Terry Sparks. This time a full frontal shot of her as she poses thigh deep in the sea off Rhodes, with the sun glistening off her wet body and a hint in the shadows of her dark thick bush! A scan from one of 3 sets of contact sheets of Venetia I’ve recently acquired, so I now have plenty more to come.
It seems fitting to do a post of Venetia today as it is Black Friday (boom boom!) Not quite what they meant or very politically correct, but then I prefer my Black Friday to the madness out there!
