On occasion, I have coffee with two local senior photographers, like me. They are longtime good friends, but they include me every so often which pleases me.
Until just a few days ago, we last got together about two or three weeks prior. It was a last minute affair then, and we sat and gabbed at the coffee shop for four hours. They are both jolly good gabbers, which is great for me, for I am not.
Sue was getting beside herself as the four-hour mark approached because normal people don't usually have coffee for four ours — especially in the evening.
When she messaged me, maybe twenty minutes before the gabfest broke up to see if I was alright, I replied that I was. But I neglected to press SEND. Oh dear.
And then she called twice, but I was already in the car on the way home, so I couldn't answer. She was not in a good frame of mind when I got home. Apparently, she still loves me and was worried about what might have befallen me.
We had coffee again this week, on Saturday morning, for a more respectable hour and a half. During which time, we agreed to meet at six o'clock Sunday morning, to shoot in the quiet downtown.
I think the main goal was to photograph the two artfully painted pianos that have recently been left out in our little downtown. One was still covered because of rain the previous night, but the other is under a canopy, so it was accessible.
This sort of photography isn't my main interest, but one does what one can.
The guys: Bob and Nick in that order.
After we finished with our little shoot, we ... you guessed it ... went for coffee.
But, naturally, I took some other photos which I shall share in due course. Naturally.
