I enjoyed the outing to Portobello Market on a photoshoot with the London Flickr Meetups group today. Shayna was one of the other people who came along – I had not met her before but we enjoyed chatting from time to time during our walkabout. She is an American, hailing from New York, who moved to London 25 years ago to run a shop in Portobello Road. She is now an Attitude Adjuster. What a fantastic job description! Thanks for your company Shayna, it was great to meet you.
This evening I went to my photography club for a workshop. We have had an influx of new members, and I haven’t been able to go along for a few weeks, so I had not met Victoria before. We chatted about her photographic ambitions – she’s a mum of three and her youngest little boy is already a model (he’s nearly two). She would love to be able to take portraits of him but admits she is very new to photography, having taken it up in the last year or so. Thanks for being my impromptu model, Victoria – it was great talking to you, and I’m sure it won’t be the last time.
