Sample sales

Hm......don't you just love spontaneous moments?

When you wake up in the morning, most of the time you already know what you're gonna do the whole day.
But sometimes, you have to schedule unexpected invitations, unplanned dates, unplanned event visits, sample sales you didn't know of (just a few hours before it actually takes places)!


- Browsing through 15 euro Cheap Monday jeans -
Please help me out: I need to know the name of the first track of the fashion show, shown on the Cheap Monday website: 'Fashion Show Clip AW 09'

So, last friday, I had a tight schedule:

Me waking up at 7 am in the morning thinking: 'Where am I...? Oh right, I'm in 'E-town', at my parents' place...shit, I have to go to the dentist in 1.5 hour!'

After my dentist appointment, I had to go back to Amsterdam...with my dad being the driver of a rented van: I moved to a new place in Amsterdam. That's why I went back to E-Town to get the rest of my stuff. So right now, I don't live in the most coziest place of Amsterdam anymore (de Pijp). I moved to Amsterdam-East. For me, that's the same like going back to the ghet-towwwwww! The Big Boss is back in towwwwwn!!.

Yeah. Last friday. I went to an unplanned event (I had to take a break from packing out stuff and decorating my new room):

Streetlab organised a sample sale - fashion - music - drinks selling (ridiculously low priced!!!) cloths. I've seen a lot of Cheap Monday (Swedish brand!) stuff. I bought one black Cheap Monday t-shirt, because I am broke-as-a-joke. I will post a pic of myself wearing the tee...when it's hot, hot, hot, hot here in Amsterdam. :P


- DJ duo called 'HOMEWORK' -


- There was only one other photographer at the event-


- People were just taking their cloths off behind some clothing racks (fitting area?). I had a short but sweet meeting with these two lovely ladies in the back...........Mmm hm. -

More to come this week.

Welcome back to the ghettoooo, now we have more street cred than any blogger in the world, haha. Mmmhhmmm, fa' sho'!

haha , you bitch! why do you get to go to these things, and i dont? looks great anyway. hm, so you live in the ghetto now. take some photos. :D thanks for the comment btw, but it's just that i have a shitty shitty camera. aaah i hate it so much. i see people every day on the street with big system cameras and drool comes out of my mouth. (purpose of this message is to make you say: oh leo, i have a new and shiny canon at home that i dont use, i'll send it to you at once.)

Ik vind dat zo mooi. Kijk hem moeilijk doen met flitser en extra grip en ik ben ervan overtuigd dat jij toch mooiere en interessantere foto's hebt gemaakt dan hem!

primes & laag diafragma for the win!

Ida said...

Spontaneity, nothing like it, right? I love making plans just to alter them.

So, did you buy anything after all?

P.S. I use a Nikon D90 with a Nikkor 50mm 1.4G. Nothing too fancy but I love photo-editing.

Nil said...

It seems like you had so much fun! Maybe you are seeing Turkish girls in your country but don't know they are Turkish :)

Dooder City said...

The last photo is so great. I love sample sales! Oh and my headline from yesterday was from an Eric Clapton song.

Dominica said...

@Spaceship Commander :

Those guys always get the best pics and who knows, the ladies too ...
He's kinda cute, the other photographer...
and Dennis is right ... about the flash and stuff, way to many 'toeters & bellen'
Great post JD !!
