As I am typing this post, it is snowing outside :)
This makes a happy Messy particularly as I can snuggle up in my WARM apartment. Yes, blog fans, the Messy household is once again WITH HEAT. The wonderful (and photogenic- he was one of my early "100 Strangers" subjects) Clayton from CWL Services (gas and heating specialists) came late last night and fixed our recalcitrant boiler. 30 mins, a bit of tinkering, and Clayton had the boiler running like new. Clayton is my new favourite person (he even asked how my photography was going and we like that :))
After my first hot shower in 5 days, today I was ready to up camera and bang off a few rounds. Mr Messy and I headed to Soho to one of our favourite coffee shops, Fernandez&Wells. While we were sipping our latte's the first snow started to fall- it was wonderful being tucked up in the coffee shop while tiny flakes of snow swirled and whirled outside the window. A toasted comté cheese and tomato croissant and creamy latte helped to starve off the 11am hunger pangs.
********** I was going to post a few thoughts I have about photographing strangers but for the last 1 1/2 hours I have been out playing in the SNOW!!!! When I first started this post it had only snowed a wee bit but since around 7:30pm it has been bucketing down! We have been out having snowball fights with our friends- SO MUCH FUN!!!!!!!!!!!! I took some photos but my battery died a few photos in and I couldn't be bothered trekking home to get a spare battery(Photographer rule no #: always pack spare batteries!) Anyhoo will post photos tomorrow. I am off to thaw out in my HOT shower :) :)
