London YAY

Hi peeps

After a very long time, I'll be back in London for a bit for 2 weeks in Sept.

I'm super excited to see friends and eat my fav food, things have prob changed, wouldn't mind meeting a few RFF members for tea and shooting sesh if I have time.

I'm also going to go crazy on shooting because I haven't done it in a long time and I want to work on a personal project. :E

Going to bring my Leica and Hasselblad most likely but don't want to carry too many lenses (for Leica). Maybe I'll just bring the 35? :x
*screaming inside *

Depends when in September and whether I've sold my house by then, but happy to pop up to town to do some shooting if I'm free.

Apart from that have a Rolleiflex 3.5F, the odd Minolta XD7, Hasselblad 500cm, a Topcon Super D and an Intrepid 5x4 large format (not the half of it but I am clearing them out, honest).

I do all my own black and white developing at home.

Glad to see you showing some restraint, Sara

Have a great time. Deeply envious.

I was thinking about bringing a wider lens honestly. I actually have a 50, 35, and 28. I don't know if I should bring all. I'm so tempted. But I'm carrying other things too, like drawing materials. I'm being too ambitious I know.

Thanks lynnb, and Helen.
Honestly it is the only place where I'm motivated to shoot lots

My plan is to go shoot and work on a certain project which I shall eventually reveal here in time...

I loved staying at the CitizenM Tower of London. Get a room overlooking the ... Tower of London. Wonderful experience.
