Random post of squee :D  
I had a great moment just now :D

I went to pick up certain photo prints, I ordered two versions to see which one looks better for what I have in mind. I always go to the same place, they've been developing my pics for 20 years and they do amazing quality stuff \o/



But today I went to pick up, let's just say, a very specific type of project and I figured it would either end in a very awkward moment or simply they would ignore it. I went in and the guy saw me, obviously recognized me and immediately took out the envelope with my pics. And then he told me all smiles, "Hello! Oh, my. You create such beautiful things. This one's really amazing!"

Okay, that kinda made my day because obviously any print I have ever given to anyone came from that photo lab, so they've seen my other stuff, but appareny this one did it for the guy, heeeeeee.

So, yay for me :D

I was really betting on the "go in, pick up stuff, leave quickly" version but he was just so delighted, LOL :D

Great! Although now you have me intrigued, what was the picture?!
kanarek13kanarek13 on August 4th, 2014 04:01 pm (UTC)
That has to remain a secret for a while. But don't worry, you'll have a chance to see it :D

Wow, that is personal service, here, the pics go to I guess a factory and the store clerck doesnt see them...
kanarek13kanarek13 on August 4th, 2014 04:10 pm (UTC)
Yeah, we can order prints this way, too, but this particular photo lab is a small one and they have their equipment right there in the back. I still remember the times when I had to go there with a film to develop and back then the interior was different and you could see all the machines processing films and printing photos... Now they have it all in the back. Despite being a small company, they deliver top notch quality of prints :D
nywcgirlnywcgirl on August 4th, 2014 05:56 pm (UTC)
Your Lucky to still have such a service, wouldnt know any stor here that does it, once a year we have pictures made of our family and the photographer takes care off those pictures, and I must say, theay Always look fantastic, much better than the once from a regular store.

WOW what a nice thing for him to say! : )

Yup, it was kind of a final test on the art piece :) Now I'm happy :D

kanarek13kanarek13 on August 4th, 2014 07:13 pm (UTC)
Yup, this one was without the fandom factor \o/

There is a dreamy, otherworldly quality to your art. Romance. Without that damnably trite 'B'.
kanarek13kanarek13 on August 4th, 2014 07:15 pm (UTC)
Awww, thank you. But I do consider Neal and Peter's irresistible features the main reason why something looks nice :D They are so inspiring :D

And heee... well, you know who can have that B and where they can put it :P

kanarek13kanarek13 on August 4th, 2014 07:15 pm (UTC)
Thanks :D It was unexpected AND without the fandom factor, which is why it made me smile :D

But, you deserve ALL the compliments because your work is incredibly awesome!!!!

And, I'm so glad you got them and that they made your day!
kanarek13kanarek13 on August 4th, 2014 07:19 pm (UTC)
Awww, thank you :D Our boys are so beautiful, they take most of the credit for teh pretty :D But it was nice because it was completely random, without the White Collar background or the illustration background :D

Well, both prints are coming with me to DC :) These are just samples anyway, I needed to see whick texture works better, glossy or matte. Matte it is :D
pooh_collectorpooh_collector on August 4th, 2014 07:22 pm (UTC)
YAY!!!!

I can't wait to see them and I can't wait to see YOU!!!!

Not everyone. :(

You'd better post piccies once you showed it to everyone at the meet-up though! Just sayin'. *sadface*
kanarek13kanarek13 on August 5th, 2014 03:02 pm (UTC)
Awww, yeah /o\ But it was the very last chance to see the boys ♥ Come next year... :P

And no worries, you'll see my creation :D
elrhiarhodanelrhiarhodan on August 4th, 2014 07:26 pm (UTC)

kanarek13kanarek13 on August 4th, 2014 08:02 pm (UTC)
