I met three peeps on Monday. I meet more than three actually but it was three in particular that stuck in my little pea-sized brain. First up is .......... no, forgot to ask his name but he does hail from Austria and held a Leica Monochrome with a certain amount of intention at the door of An Lanntair. We struck up a conversation - as I do on account of me hold holding a camera too - a proper film one and everything. Mr Austria had been doing a bit of surreptitious street photography so in turn I did a bit of obvious portraitising.
I'd been in supping coffee with the great Toots of Bac. I think he must have been for a perm or something. Then Mrs Toots came in, said hello and went soon after - back to work I think. Lovely. I met Colyne and Colin here too among others.
Then I was accosted, nicely I might add, by the lovely Jean from England who has been following this blog for a year or three for some reason. Had a roll of wool under her arm too. Perhaps just trying to blend in with the locals. Was lovely to meet her so I snapped her up with my newly acquired almost new 1937 German rf camera. I almost got her all in. Well, I was so very excited that someone knew who I am.
I must write it down before I forget again.
