Today was not my day…

with 10 comments

Today I had so many photo-terms. Starting with a portrait of a Trimo CEO Mrs. Tatjana Fink. I forgot to bring to Trebnje tripod and a softbox for the flash, but luckily I was an hour early, so I called taxi to bring me those things. He charged me 30 EUR! But as long the quality does not suffer I don’t mind losing all the profit if learn on mistakes.

Then I was photographing three individuals for the cover of Trimotim, a corporate Trimo magazine. The wind blew my Balcar 1500 Ws of balance and it fell down on a fully stretched tripod. The back of the flash broke and the whole housing shifted and its electric wired guts were all over. It was still functioning though!

Then I was photographing an interview with newly elected Minister of education and sport Igor Lukšič. I did great pictures, but then I had to run to Mirna on another social event of Trimo, but my battery in the car was dead. I called and they charged my battery and although I was late for an hour I still did all the pictures required.

I was talking with some corporate people and the question about recession aroused and how do I dare to build a house in this times. I said that recession is like a winter. And during the winter we are not panicking because flowers are not blooming and I feel OK, just to know roots are deep and safe.

Today I was working from 7 am until 9 pm, but I lost more money then I earn it. Nevertheless I did good pictures and all my customers were satisfied and that is what really matters.

  1. It doesn’t sound like a bad day, just rough successful day. We live in material world, but there are things that money can not buy. (For everything else there is mastercard 🙂 ) Good night!

  2. And TODAY was not my DAY!
    First thing in the morning I have lost 150EUR from my pocket, on the way to Brina’s nanny. The money was for her!

    I made someone very happy today! And someone very pissed! 😦
