The Hay Festival is on, and we're here, (I'm shooting it for the festival - and the blog) and in a bizarre act of serendipity, on our first day - while Roz and her family had, unbeknownst to us, left messages on my cell phone - we literally ran into them in the town. Turned a corner as we were rushing to the car to get to a camera shop before it closed (we had left early on Friday - with cat, litter, food, ten days' worth of summer festival clothing, chargers, laptops, you name it - but I forgot the little plastic thingy - the card reader to upload the photos!) and we were in a rush to get there before the store closed, and who did we see but Roz and her family! (her first time at the festival).
Just as I was taking these quick street style shots of Roz, in a second act of bizarre serendipity, Mr. Dot noticed that we didn't need to drive 40 minutes to Hereford town: a computer shop two doors down from the corner where we ran into them had the exact card I needed!
Sending this from deepest rural Herefordshire, at the in-laws house (with Mr. Dot & cat) - we had a big boisterous visit with cousins, dogs etc but now they're on holiday and it's just us - and we've worked out a way to get wifi, so I can post after all! But now back to the festival. The weather is dark, grey, rainy and cold, and I've got a suitcase full of flip flops and summery frocks. Roz was dressed exactly right for the look that day: Welsh slate grey, with splashes of colour: English strawberry red and Colman's Mustard. It was impossible to get a clear head to toe shot as crowds rushed by but I kind of like the randomness off the guy and the woman's mac and grey bag.
Okay enough chit chat: we've already missed AA Gill and now we'd better get on the road to catch the next event! Hope you're having a lovely Bank Holiday Weekend. Where are you? Is it warm where you are?
