I’ve known Marijana for a while, now. I actually don’t remember how we got in touch in the first place, all I know it was because of the mutual interest we shared – photography. Before the two of us actually got to meet in real life, we had been chatting online for a year.. or two. We finally met two months ago when Marijana and her boyfriend decided to visit my town. Too bad that day was pouring outside so we couldn’t go on a photo walk but we managed to enjoy a share of pleasant conversation and a cup of straight on good laugh. And pizza! We ate pizza!
Now, I knew she was planning to send me something for my birthday as she previously told me so. This morning the package came. I was literally blown away by the creativity and the personal touch she put into it. She made it all by herself and drew all the little pictures, too. I’ve always admired her ability to sketch. I wish I could do it, too.
In the letter, she wished me all the best thing in life, hence the university graduation cap. Hehe. I can’t believe even my D800 got frozen in time. And the polas. ^^
Since she lives in Vienna, she invited me multiple times to come and stay with her for a day or two. And I will come. Look at all the goodies she has planned for the two of us during my stay. As legit Flickrties, we will be tasting macaroons, ice cream, sipping coffee, enjoying the Vienna panorama from the famous Prater wheel, shopping at M-A-C (for which she sent me a gift card – Marijana, you are crazy and I can not thank you enough!) and of course, taking snaps of our feet and documenting everything else previously written. You know, for the blog. Hehe.
Sometimes, we make friends out of the blue. I never would have thought, when I first started with photography, that it would bring so many cool people in my life. Never, in a billion years. I always thought I would just take photos, share them on Flickr and that is it. But, I guess God works in so many mysterious ways. Without me even realizing at first, I got surrounded with such warm and creative souls. Not only the shutters of our cameras clicked but we, as people, clicked too! I am so happy.
