So here are some unexpected Little Houses I found today for this week's #urbansnap courtesy of the one and only Mr +Gordon Laing. This morning Gordon treated me to brekkie at Mama's in Washington Square (North beach, SF) because after hearing him tell us all how much he loved the place whilst on Sunday's Photowalk, I sent him a blog post I wrote about this popular spot way back in 2006. My complementary prose unexpectedly resulted in an invitation to join him and so it was that I found myself this morning tucking into crab Benedict and omelette and all manner of French toasts with Gordon and his daughter. What a fun hour we spent. At some point I noticed that the entire cafe was decorated with Little Houses. Well, knock me down with a feather - what were the chances of that happening? Seriously. The #urbansnap Gods had colluded and pushed me along the paths of fate to create a moment of wonderful coincidence.
Thank you, thank you so much +Gordon Laing, I hope our paths will cross again. If you are not familiar with Gordon, do check out his Camera Labs website, a must for any photographer, where he shares information about the tests he carries out on all sorts of photography gear: http://www.cameralabs.com/about/
And if you want to read that sadly dated blog post review of Mama's I wrote over 6 years ago, check here. It hasn't changed a bit since then...
+Urban Snap is a photography game with a theme that changes every Thursday, hosted by me and +Kristine Ward
