Here’s a shot of the group I was with Saturday afternoon. Great bunch of folks. I’m honoured to know them.
Just watched Lost in Translation. First time since I saw it in the theatre back in 2003. Still just as moving for me. I’d forgotten that the reason Scarlett Johanssen’s character was in Tokyo was her husband’s a professional photographer sent there on a shoot. That’s two movies back to back that had photography in them. In Friday’s movie, Yes Man, Zooey Deschanel’s character teaches a photography/running class part time in the morning on weekends.
Anyway, all in all it was a good long weekend, although I didn’t get up to much today. I met some friends for breakfast this morning to wish one of them a goodbye because she’s moving her family to Calgary. She lives in Ottawa so it’s still a long distance friendship, just longer now. If I ever decide to visit Calgary again, at least I’ll have a place to stay.
