    I went to the laundrymat tonight and decided to take my camera to get some pics of the dryers ( clothes tumbling inside etc - you get my drift ). Took a couple of shots and then started doing my spanish homework whilst I waited for my clothes to dry.

    A chic walked in and sat down ( I thought she was there waiting on HER clothes ). Anyhoo after half an hour I finally finished my homework and noticed her setting up her tripod and camera and directing it at the washing machines.

    I laughed and told her " I had the same idea tonight ... but I took some shots of the DRYERS before you got here lol ! " :LOL:.
    She laughed as well and admitted that she had been sitting there waiting for the couple of other ppl to leave ( including me ) so that she could take the shots. We ended up chattin for ages about photography ( including how we BOTH felt a lil self -concious about ppl thinkin we're wierdos for pointing our cameras at dryers/washing machines ).

    I just loved the coincidence of it ; its a small & quiet laundrymat in the big city ...
    and two complete strangers decided to go to it with their cameras at the same time, on the same day :eek:ne wanting to take pics of the washing machine ....and the other wanting shots of the dryers .... :lol:

    Hey, you should get together and market your photos as a set :) That is a cute story, funny how in the big world we are drawn to people who share the same passions!

    LOL good idea Alison !
    It was bizarre , we instantly chatted away as if we had known each other for ages too !
    I guess photography ( and other pastimes /passions etc ) has a way of being an instant 'bridge' between strangers....

    I shoulda gotten her phone # !!

    That's happened to me many times on airplanes. You know the prerequisite chatter, where are you from, what do you do? Since photography is infinitely more interesting than being a life insurance underwriter I always say, "I'm a photographer" and so many people turn out to have a love of photography, whip out their wallets and show their pictures. Nice to know that the world is full of people who want to capture it on film (or digital).
