Story Dated: 6.12.10
My annual celebration of my sister’s beautiful family.
Shopping at Victoria Market, with bratwurst, coffee and donuts, is one of their favourite family traditions. So I tried to capture it for them, although in hindsight there was some level of distraction for me that I need to work on for next time….that is: having such a good time with the chatting and the cheese-tasting and the purchasing of delicious produce that I kept forgetting the taking of the photographs. Next time I shoot at the Vic markets I think I need to make a shopping visit first, so as to get that out of my system. At the moment on shoots I am always so thrilled to find myself out in the big world (as opposed to at home in the land of never-ending breastfeeding) that I am a bit more distractable and confused than usual. Which is really saying something.
Now, getting back to these people….Thank you. All of you. For being so kind and generous and beautiful and warm and funny and colourful and there is really not an adjective I could use that wouldn’t be appropriate. Thankyou even for living just a few streets away. You are everything to us, and we hope you have an amazing year. Santa will bring you all these and more in an album, although might take him til after Christmas to deliver it
Finally I want to mention that the picture quality on this blog continues to appall me despite my best efforts to work out what is causing it. I don’t have the same problem over on RedTelegram. Anyway, apologies.
