Another Blogger Meetup

 

Ayush.

Astrid and I drove 135 km south to Venlo, NL, this past Saturday to meet Ayush.

He's an Indian man who lives in Singapore and works for the Dutch printing company OCÉ.

He has traveled to Venlo twice this year, so we made sure we met him the second time around.

Now there is a familiar face!

I have had the pleasure of outings with Ayush, on two occasions, when I was working in Singapore.

Good to see how my SC buddies find opportunities to meet, Ginnie.

Ayush now uses a Canon 7D2, and I am green with envy.
Ginnie Hart: Ayush verifies in the video his two visits with you, Ray, so you both clearly have good memories. And yes, we saw him with his camera but all I noticed was that it was a Canon (and not the other brand!). smile Meeting our fellow bloggers like this has become one of our greatest joys!

The moment we heard that Ayush would spend some time again in the Netherlands we made sure that we would meet.
It was a great afternoon. Love the vimeo smile
I do hope there will be a next time and we can show Ayush were we live.
Ginnie Hart: Five hours with a gentle man on an autumn Saturday doesn't get much better, MLMA. It was a wonderful memory to keep. And yes, if he comes back, we'll show him around our neck of the woods.
Lovely collage of the great day you spent together Ginnie! Thank you for sharing.
Ginnie Hart: You're most welcome, ichrad. It was every bit as good as it looks.

L'arroseur arrosé !
Ginnie Hart: Now, if someone could tell me what that means in English, I'll be happy! smile

Creating the video was a stroke of genius, Ginnie - it almost seems as I have met Ayush, too
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Lisl. I'm so glad I thought of making the video because I would have wanted the same kind of chance to hear him speak if it had been you visiting with him!

What a young, likeable man! I enjoyed watching your video (oh, he speaks excellently English) and your montage! I can imagine your pleasure to meet him up in Venlo! He surely speaks some Dutch words. I hope he will visit some old- Dutch stadjes, too.
Ginnie Hart: He is very much a gentle man, Philine! And if he returns to Venlo at a future date, he plans to take the train to visit us here in our neck of the woods.

Aha - it's so agreeable to be able to put a face to a name Ayush, nice to meet you!
Ginnie Hart: My sentiments exactly, Chris.
Great to both see and hear Ayush.
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Bill. Thanks.

Ginnie Hart: Yes they are, Pat...and such a privilege to meet those we have known for years!
Good to see the face behind the name,I'm sure you had a good time together
Ginnie Hart: Yes and Yes, Martin...like when we first met YOU! smile

Belles rencontres
JP
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, JP.
une belle rencontre!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Yes, JP. It was wonderful.
I am glad you caught him in his down low position as this is often where he gets his shots.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Mary.
I'm grinning from ear to ear, I almost feel as if I've met Ayush as well, the video was a great idea, he seems to be a lovely person.
Ginnie Hart: I'm so glad you appreciated the video, Brian, because when I thought of the idea, I couldn't help think I'd want to see/listen to him in the same way if someone else had met up with him.

Well hello Ayush! We use your OCÉ printers in the mad House smile Another face to the name of the SCers. smile
Ginnie Hart: A dutch printer, then, Alan...even where you are! I love it.

I enjoyed the video. For someone whi has met Ray TWICE, Ayush seems quite unaffected by the experience. I would probably end up with a nervous twitch smile (Only kidding, Ray!)
Ginnie Hart: Anyone who has met Ray twice and has survived the ordeal has got to be quite a guy, Alan, to which Astrid and I can both attest. smile

This is lovely Ginnie, thank you for introducing us to another Shutterchancer, it is great to put a face to the name
Ginnie Hart: You're welcome, of course, Anne. It's fun, isn't it. Our community keeps growing and growing.
Oh how FUN!!!
Ginnie Hart: It's one way to let others see and hear a bit of the meet-up, Robin. smile
So that's how I sound... so very unusual to my ears! grin
Thank you so much for the collage and the video. But my favourite shot is that of the billboard (it is a good couple of kms away). Your steady arms and that lens of yours are phenomenal.
Ginnie Hart: I know what you mean about hearing your own voice, Ayush. HA! At least we're both in it together. And yes, about that camera. That's why I call it "magic." It still surprises even me, after 2 years. smile
Nice to meet Ayush face to face!
Ginnie Hart: I totally agree!
Looks right at home... smile
Ginnie Hart: Absolutely, Larry.
How wonderful to see Ayush - and to hear his voice! Great job on the shots and the montage!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. It was such a wonderful 5 hours together.
So nice to see and hear, Ayush...Just as nice a guy as we thought ...smile
Ginnie Hart: Absolutely, Frank. He fits right in with all of us!
Thanks for sharing the pix and video. Lovely to meet Ayush here. I'm sure you enjoyed your visit.
Ginnie Hart: You're welcome, Jacquelyn, and absolutely!
