I miss my mates..

When I graduated high school, I had the honour to call 2 guys best friends.. As life would have it, all 3 of us now live in 3 different countries, study at university in 3 different languages and haven't seen each other in 2 years. This shall be about the last time we did.

It was August 2009. The 3 of us decided to have a reunion in Amsterdam. What could be better for 3 guys fresh out of high school, right?
My now-girlfriend and her childhood female friend also came on the trip, which obviously had its pluses and minuses.. We couldn’t have as much “guy” fun as we planned originally, but we still had loads of “normal” fun =D
This was also the time when I finally took my Holga somewhere. I’ve had it for a year before that trip, but I haven’t been doing much, mainly due to my interest in digital photography and financial issues (development + printing of 1 film cost close to 22 euros).
So there I am, HOlga and like 10 packs of film for 5 days.
It was the best decision I ever made. I hadn’t even touched my digital on that trip.
We spent our days walking around the city, partying at night, watching street performers and so on.
It was quite memorable really and I miss just hanging out with those guys.

There’s another reunion planned. Just guys this time. August 2011.
My camera collection since grew – fisheye, Smena, an old Konica SLR, Lubitel, diana mini. And hell if i am will i be taking all of these babies with me =)))
