2008 was a big year for me and Louie. I was doing more work for my classes than ever before, I was the photography technician at school, I had several friendship groups to juggle, I was getting ready to open up my etsy shop, I was in a band, I was in a scooter club, I was art journalling every day and blogging and... who knows what else.
It was great to have the freedom of my Vespa to scoot around to friends houses for parties or band practice. I remember, once I got more comfortable, I could ride into Bristol and get my colour film processed during lunch and grab a subway.
I wore my parka basically everyday and was completely in love with Mod fashions. At school there was a 'bike shed' with an overhang where a couple of little motorbikes/scooters would be parked. I was the only girl. It was pretty funny, but the spiders were no laughing matter. yuck.
I was also just getting into Lomography for reals. I swear I never went anywhere without my LC-A. Such a magical time.When summer came and exams were finishing, it was all about going to Harriet's house for movies and band practice or heather's for chocolate milk. A load of my friends loved Louie too, and I'd give them a secret little ride (just around the parking lot) if they were lucky. haha.Harriet and I (right) used to sing 'Lola' really loudly.
The pictures kind of speak for itself so I'll leave it there for now. Part III coming soon!
