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!
åh, vad fint vad fint!! mötet och själva dokumentationen.ReplyDelete
i wish you a very toppen helg, F!
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.ReplyDelete
åh vad kul om jag hade kunnat vara med! wooo. roligt roligt! ser ut att ha varit en mycket fin date.ReplyDelete
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.
how great! also, digital isn't so bad. but i agree...a compromise would be good - 1 digital, 1 film.ReplyDelete
have a nice weekend.
Oooh a yashica minister D, I have one of those too! :) Looked like a fun day with loads of 'camera talk'!ReplyDelete
looks and sounds like you had a very nice time together:) must be very exciting to meet people "live" after getting to know thru photos.ReplyDelete
great pics too!
you know that's so true - had you not been shooting digital then we wouldn't be seeing this. have a great easter weekend - loved our fika day, let's do it again soon.ReplyDelete

mary: what a coincidence! but I must say that the buns were huge again, in the afternoon batch anyway. yuuuuum!
lottie: yes, let's!

and i am so glad you took all these! i'm putting my film in tomorrow so i hope to have lots of little gems to post
can i say again how lovely it was to meet you both. i wish i could do it all over again.
Vilken mysig träff ni verkar ha haft!ReplyDelete
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.
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. :)ReplyDelete
