I don't need a Nikon. I have an Erin.

"Don't move."

I froze by the antique mirrors.

Erin adjusted her lens and took the picture.

I love having photography crazy friends because I'm that person who takes pictures and never uploads them.

Luckily for me, I have Erin and her fancy shmancy camera, which she brought to El Rastro on Sunday. She kept apologizing for trailing behind or waiting for the perfect shot.

I had a Dorian Gray connection with this painting. The grumpy old man selling it knocked the price down to 20 euros but the voice of reason told me to walk away. I thought about how my sister would feel about having to haul this back to the States. You're welcome, Jen.

At least I have a picture of it.

(photos by the lovely Erin Birney, who by the way fellas, looks a LOT like Kirsten Dunst. A single, drug-free Kirsten Dunst)


  1. I don't remember how I found you anymore, but I've been reading since you moved to Madrid. My sister's studying over there now, so I like to share your stories with her. Anyway, I really just wanted to say MY name's Erin and I'M the (un)official photographer of all my friend&family gatherings. I was sure this blog was about me. Yay for camera crazy Erins :o)

  2. Oh wow, thanks so much for reading! I will have to share this with my camera crazy Erin.
