Flickr buddies








Yesterday I met up with two of my flickr friends for the first time, Claire (who's in town at the moment) and Lottie. It's was so nice to finally meet as I've been following their photostreams for a loooong time now. We started off with cinnamon buns at Nordic Bakery and I quickly felt a bit like an impostor. Claire had five cameras on her and Lottie three. I had two, both of them digital... They were shooting away on film and on Polaroid and I felt like the odd one out, I mean why am I so digital? Years ago I swore I'd never desert film, but I guess I forgot... Afterwards we wandered around Soho and popped into the Photographers' Gallery where we all agreed that the new building is pants. Such a shame. We then continued on to Maison Bertaux and out came their lovely cameras again. I have to learn to leave my digi at home more, I have to. Happy Holidays everyone!

  2. but, if you didn't have your digital, we wouldn't have these great shots. i say compromise and take one of each around town if you have 'em.

    oddly i was at the nordic bakery yesterday morning and by the way, i agree with you the cinnamon buns have got smaller!
    wouldn't it have been cool to have met up by chance.

  5. how great! also, digital isn't so bad. but i agree...a compromise would be good - 1 digital, 1 film.
    have a nice weekend.

  13. Vilken mysig träff ni verkar ha haft!
    En del tycker att Internet avskärmar folk från varandra....men det kan ju faktist leda till väldigt givande möten som inte kunnat ske utan just Internet.

  14. At first I thought the polaroid of the camera was a Leica Minox....my camera! It is quite cute and tiny. Trying to keep up a blog of my own. It started to be daily like yours....but I couldn't keep up! Thanks for the inspiration. :)
