After a spring when I traveled to Istanbul and met fellow dA photographers arsanalp
and further to Lisbon where JACAC
met up, when I planned my summer trip to England and London it felt natural to try and meet some more dA Friends!
After some interesting coincidences and a little planning, Jan Rockar = lightdrafter
, and I met on the afternoon of July 3rd at the small London pub The Crown near Piccadilly Circus.
Jan at the Crown. We talked for a while and then decided to do a photo-walk together. Here are two pictures of mine taken in the first few minutes.
After a few minutes more we came upon these people outside a store in Carnaby Street:
Jan engaged them in arranging a picture and blocking the foot traffic in the process
And here is Jan's resulting image:
At Oxford Circus, we came upon another strange scene:
Here are a couple more of my shots from the day. Jan was so inspiring company!
Jan caught me documenting him and did the same to me:
Oh wait, I'm shooting him right now, this is too meta...
Some of Jan's pictures from this day:
More snaps of Jan in action:
We met this very nice man from Osaka, Japan who was in London studying English.
Jan's shot of him:
Of course, you need pit stops during a long photo-walk. Here we are checking out what we had produced:
I suddenly realized I needed to hurry to catch my train! Jan was kind enough to help find the quickest way.
Just one more shot on the way!
We had a lot of fun! We agreed to meet again the next day. More about that next Tuesday!
