"I’m a MA photography student with a passion for music and live photography. I have been part of the photography team of a rock festival in Switzerland, which was hard work but fun. I really enjoy capturing the atmosphere through the lens in a creative and vibrant way. In order to build up my portfolio and gain more experience I am always happy to volunteer and contribute my skills.
"I am reliable and focussed while working.
"I’m looking forward to hearing from you."
The young lady included a link to her portfolio of obviously rocking musicians and fans. I thought this girl can really do it. What luck.
So I replied: "If you're not busy right now, how about a coffee. I'm not too far from Mykonos Restaurant at the moment (in a Tim Horton's). We could meet there and I could show you the situation.
"Ps, your photos are great."
I thought she's sitting there looking at her computer right now and sees the (1) on her email tab and now she's reading me.
I waited for her to think about it.
Maybe she thinks I'm some old perv after her body.
Went back to Frank's commentary about the problems of putting "found material" from the internet into poetry. Looked up the term "flarf" on google.
"Thank you for getting back to me so fast and your kind words. Checking closer I realised just now that you are on another continent. I am in London, UK. What a pity...
"Hope you find someone suitable "
Oh just damned GREAT!!
"Booo hoooo!! Yes, that's a problem we have now and then. We're a tiny copy of London, UK. Even our street names are from there. Our river is the Thames, and one of it's tributaries is the River Avon, which has a small city on it called Stratford, whose biggest industry is the Stratford Theatre Festival of largely Shakespeare plays. And on it goes. Most of our citizens are English, obviously. Ha ha. Oh well, we'll get a photographer eventually. You really had my hopes up though. Thanks for trying,
I do go on.
"I only realised when I looked closer on google maps! haha! the thames really got me confused! the british should have been more creative in giving names when they decided to invade the world.
"Have a lovely day, Stan."
Oh well, cast out again.
