The day we met Amy...
Well Saturday was good. Keon and I arrived early as we didn’t really know where we were going. So we had a look in the shop for once Keon didn’t complain about us shopping. I don’t know of it was an early start or I was hot and bothered...I just got a little bored. I really like the photographs in the competition. I had a look at them on the website before hand so it was nice to see them in frames and a little background info.
I was looking at the soldier a close up portrait, Magdlene asked me if I liked it, “yes" I told her. He had sadness in his eyes I wanted to hear him speak. Also I thought he was a bit of a hunk!!Anyway it turns out that Magdlenes hubby took the photo..(good job I didn’t pull it to pieces lol)
The photograph that won surprised me, I thought it was very plain and boring, it reminded me of swimming when if was at school, I was scared of the water and hated the changing rooms, so for me I discarded the photo.(not very nice I know) When I sat down there was a couple saying they couldn’t believe that photo had won also. Obviously we are not professionals and don’t know anything about the lighting pose etc.
When we left the gallery, we had a walk to Trafalgar square, Keon and I were heading for the lions, then you never guess who walked past????AMY WINEHOUSE.."Keon look there’s AMY"...only joking it was Amy in Drag!!Any way I shouted Amy can we take your pic! Sure she said and posed...then we saw the others...5 drag queens! I ended up in the middle of them and saying to Keon take one more! One of the ladies said hurry up, I’m getting face ache! So I said actually we are doing a project taking photos, they said ahw bless him!!
So after all that excitement we got on the bus and jumped of had a wonder round China town, managed to buy a paper lantern..Keon didn’t feel comfortable not sure why. So we headed home.
ABC..forces me to get off my backside and see more of London...creating memories. I’m sure one day Keon will tell his children about the day he met Amy....
