Chachi Loves Flickr
Originally uploaded by colourblind.
We saw Rannie's set up as soon as we arrived. I was going to stop in quick and then take Chachi down to where the Rochester ferry, The Breeze, splits from, but Rannie wanted to chill for a bit first and invited me to join the flickr meet-up group hanging out at the other end of the beach. It was kinda cool, a group of people, most of whom only knew each other from the screen alias' used to identify one's photos uploaded on flickr. We hung out a bit, listening to some cool tunes, supplied by Duchamp. I met a few people and learned a couple cool things about my camera that I hadn't known, as well as some general photography tips. Since everyone had their cameras out and weren't totally comfortable taking shots of each other at first, Chachi became the natural subject. Colourblind took this one of a smiling Chachi down at the beach. A bunch of other great shots came out of the meet-up, but I have yet to pick up the "pro" shots taken by Rannie of Chachi and I down the the Cherry Beach lifeguard stand. Looking forward to seeing the shots and to the next spontaneous photoblogger beach party, Chachi is too.
