Focused Like a Mad Scientist

Last week, I was on my way to meet Carin, then Lili. I was late and tired from an enormous piece of luggage I carried. A trip to Europe would have taken less packaging. I was just going to pay a visit and have a coffee later. Why was I carrying my house then?

How hard was it really to take a few pictures? Plus, a lot of fun. Indeed, it was. My friends enjoyed taking the pictures and I enjoyed being my own assistant in this brave new project. To speed things up, I went as far as trying to make it work without the photographer.
