Freakin stood up again!

I'm totally practising to be a way cool photographer and have set up a studio in my house. Every now and then someone approaches me to jumpstart their portfolio or to get some photos for their family or partner. I get really excited at the opportunity because I want to be really freakin good. I get better, they get free good photos, works for everyone.

Anyway, I sit here for the second Sunday in a row stood up by the same girl. Dagnammit!
So, if any of you lovely people want some way groovy photos of your or someone you know feel free to e-mail me. The only condition is that you have to freakin show up!

How can someone stand you up!? People that just dont show up are the biggest fuckwits! I never, ever cancel unless there are serious circumstance. Let alone just not show up! How freaking, freakin annoying!!

Its even annoying me. Cant you tell?

Offering to put self up but doubts that it's humanly possible to make me look way cool and thus add to your way coolness as a pic taker - oh and you're in the wrong fucking city!
Yeah, must admit, the girl sounds like a really pleasant person cause it's so hard to contact people these days and she obviously just forgot how to use several dozen kinds of technology and her manners and so forth [am I being judgemental?]- I'd be rescheduling with her for sure, there's nothing so fun as hanging about waiting for a twit...

You two aren't like all Being At Work on a Sunday are you? That's a bit wrong!

Yeah, an sms would have been fine, a phone call would have been great, a carrier pidgeon, a single distress flare, whatever. I don't understand people sometimes! At least I was just at home, if I was waiting somewhere else I would have been irrated beyond.

as a professional photographer, theres three things i wont shoot. they are follows, in very particular order

1. friends in lo key. sure you both gain from it, but it certainly is a tenuous subject!

2. weddings

3. bar mitzvahs

What is a 'lo key'?

This wasn't a friend, I've never met this girl, this is someone who saw my work on the internet and approached me.

At 5:09 PM, Blogger nailpolishblues said...

Nah, not at work. Pathetically posting and reading/commenting from home. Really must get a life.
I was thinking maybe the 'w' ent alkabout. Mebbe not..

At 5:21 PM, Blogger Adam said...

Well I was posting at home so I hereby declare there is no shame in it!

The 'w'?!?

At 5:54 PM, Blogger nailpolishblues said...

loW key?

Otherwise no fucking idea. Don't own any kind of camera, don't display pics of anyone [my cat is the one exception], haven't a clue what she meant.

Weird? Weird?

At 6:00 PM, Blogger Adam said...

Hmmmm, good thinking young nails.

It could well be 'low key'. I wonder what she meant by a low key friend. Do you have any low key friends?

At 6:27 PM, Blogger nailpolishblues said...

I thought she meant casual by low key [I also think I may be reading too much into this]. Casual shots of friends?
I have low key friends - they're friends of friends and friends of friends of friends - you all always end up at the same parties and you catch up with each other etc but you never have any other kind of contact. Sort of the friend version of the relatives you only ever see at marriages, christenings, and funerals.

Oh, I thought maybe it was more of a photography thing, like taking glamour shots of friends, maybe that’s why it was a tenuous subject. I think we might have to get her back here to explain herself.

Hmm, actually you might be right, she might just be over taking photos of quasi-semi-friends, like mechanics get over fixing friends of friends cars. You're pretty cluey young lady!

At 1:30 PM, Blogger nailpolishblues said...

Taking glamour type pics of friends sounds tedious.
There is another reason why I don't really need a camera - one of my best friends is MAD about cameras, photos, photo taking etc etc - she has [surely hundreds of] thousands of pics of EVERYONE in varying states of sobriety. She recently went to Africa for a conference and some holiday fun and I bet she took like a million pics. Anyway, she shoots wedding [mostly informally] for friends, family, friednds of friends, pretty much anyone who asks and pretty much any occasion you ask. Who needs a camera when you have your own personal photographer?

haha guys. adam you guessed what i meant. lo key as in loW key photographs. you know? you may as well take shots to their greatest potential; of friends, foes, whatever. make a photo more than a photo yo.

and nailpolishblues: your friend sounds exactly like my boy, always snapping away; no one ever bothers to take a camera out, as they know dans gonna be there.

If anyone can translate this: haha guys. adam you guessed what i meant. lo key as in loW key photographs. you know? you may as well take shots to their greatest potential; of friends, foes, whatever. make a photo more than a photo yo.
into English for me I'd be ever so grateful, yo? Or even into a logical argument in the language of your choice - with reference to the commentary above, of course/

At 10:53 AM, Blogger Adam said...

Young Nails, I was hoping as a young lady you'd be able to translate for me!

At 1:14 PM, Blogger nailpolishblues said...

Guess we're fucked then, young Adam.
I am an old lady, I only speak old lady speak [yo?].
