meeting friends in central london

Today I met Pat, and Inês at the Photographer's Gallery to see an exhibition by Mike Figgis.
I enjoyed the show a lot. In a couple of days and today, Mike Figgis took plenty of photos in the surrounding area of the gallery. He then edited them, printed and displayed the photos in the gallery.
Some photos were portraits taken there in the gallery. And me and Zé (great photographer as well) decided to ask Mr. Figgis for a photo taken of us. I was photographed by the man himself!!!! By a twice Oscar nominated film director!!!! I was thrilled!!!!
I must say that I LOVED being in front of such a beautiful digital Hasselblad with all that studio gear. He took only 2 photos of each one of us. After that, asked if he could buy the portrait and the answer came positive. I didn't by mine, wants to buy his.

Vasco and Fátima joined us later on and we all went to an irish pub to eat and drink something.
I had lots of fun today!
Thanks guys!


More pics are to come as they all had cameras with them!

Foi mesmo giro! Temos de ir lá comer mais uns burgers.

O festival de filme Romeno foi altamente. Devias ter ido porque acho que ías gostar. Fica para a próxima!

P.s. Obrigada pelas dicas fotográficas. Passei o resto da noite com a mão na posição correcta!

Adoro as fotos. Estão fantásticas! Agora fico à espera para ver as outras, já que eu não tenho nenhuma. No meio de tanto fotógrafo e tanta máquina havia uma "cameraless". :D
