Conf 255: Deadlines

Value float day has been and gone without major incident. I spent most of it driving around central London. Paid Conjestion Charge for first time, which was a bit of a novelty. This was because had to drive partner to and from medical appointment. I had 3 hours to hang around, so, after parking in Cavendish Square, took myself off to The Wallace Collection. Still one of W1's best kept secrets - free and empty, you can just wander in off the street right into the l8th century. Stared for ages at Marie Antoinettes perfume bowl. Waved at my old office next door at EMI, now ICI, on way to Selfridges. Rode the escalators and gawped at Vivienne Westwood and Issey Miyake delish. Partner wasn't ready at allotted time, so had to drive to Kensington to collect ball photos, and then back into town, crossing over the big C in the road twice, and getting money's worth.

My 2 rolls weren't good, but partner's 6 rolls were, all spot-on focus & brilliant compositions despite the rushing around. We delivered to the PR lady on way home from hospital. All she said was they've gone to the paper, we now feel slighty miffed and think she wasn't happy with them. It's just like when you know someone's read your book but doesn't say anything. So, not a happy ending there.

Bye bye, thanks for visiting, come again soon.

Maybe not an unhappy ending either. Maybe she liked them but wasn't polite enough to say so.

Or maybe she was just blown away by them and rendered speechless!

Maybe, Debi. I love your bright side attitude anyway. I think it's probably something to do with utter bafflement that we weren't digital & she cldn't have the pics instantly, as everyone does these days.....

Oh don't start me on digital ...

We had a client once who asked if we could move her head from one pic to another ...

Viva film!
