Weekend

A few photos from my busy weekend. On Saturday morning, I did a fashion photo shoot with two Luxembourg bloggers, Imena and Vero. While I still enjoy taking photos of buildings and food, I feel it's time to evolve into a new direction and I think that offering my photo services to fashion bloggers is a great way to practice portrait and fashion photography. (Photo above by Vero)
On Saturday evening, F took me along to Asaf Avidan's concert. I had never heard of him before and I really enjoyed his performance. He was super entertaining and was telling funny stories throughout the evening. 
When he sang his last song, I realized that I had heard his music before. To be honest, if I had known that we would go and see the performer of that song (which I don't like that much), I would probably have refused to attend. This shows how we sometimes stand in our own way with our prejudgments and risk missing out on good times. 
I did two more photo shoots on Sunday morning and then rushed off to a birthday lunch. My sister's partner's grandmother was celebrating her 80th birthday and I felt honoured that she had invited me as well. 
The lunch was at Le Pigeonnier, a restaurant that I have covered several times on this blog. 
Some of the dishes may look like déjà-vus to you. 
I had two fish dishes: Aiguillette de Saint-Pierre (starter) and Turbot (main course).

The dessert was exquisite! 
The weather was amazing for early autumn. We had the coffee on the sunny terrace. 
This was the my birthday gift, a huge cake made by my colleague Ana. I don't think that the birthday lady appreciated it very much (she had to be asked twice to try a piece) but I nevertheless thought that it was a fabulous gift to make.

  1. It is great that fashion bloggers contacted you to take photo of them for their blog! I would do the same, but first I have to improve my photography skills. Now with the new lens the photos will be even better, I am sure! I have never heard of Asaf Avidan, which was the famous song you recognized? The birthday gift looks amazing, maybe the lady didn't want to ruin it, hehe.
