Violet – Studio Photographer & Artist

So today I saw a guy walking along with a empty tray of food at the Eau Claire Market. I figured, this guy can’t be too busy, so I asked him if he would be interested in being on the blog. After I told him about it he informed me that he had a studio in the building and told me the girl there would probably be into it. Off Yoshi went to dispose of his empty tray and away I went to meet this girl.

In the studio I found a very cool and easy going girl named Violet. I told her Yoshi had sent me and explained to her about the blog. To no surprise she was into it πŸ™‚ Here is what Violet had to say about Calgary.

    Well how cute is she? You’re on a real adventure, I’d be to chicken to follow strangers to their ‘studio’. I didn’t realize there was a big music scene in Calgary, mind you I’m past my ‘pub’ days…I’m recording SNL tonight, the Lumineers are on, Wa-who, (or should I say Ho-Hey) I love them.

      Haha SNL is great! πŸ™‚ But ya Violet is super cute! And your right, I am definitely on quite an adventure with this blog. It’s super fun!

    Rob, love this lot of bit of color. I’ve thought of doing something similar to what you’re doing here. The trouble with that is how many people in Latin American hideouts are hiding from something…so many of them have something to lose by foregoing their anonymity. Hmmmmm….
    Keep up the good work.

      Thank you very much! I have really been enjoying the project and meeting new people. I can understand your reluctancy regarding approaching some people in your area haha πŸ˜‰

    Congratulations !!! I’ve nominated you for the Leibster Blog Award. Apparently, last night at 3 AM when I was correcting my nominations, you didn’t get the updated, correct one. My ignorance in this whole world of blogging is showing.
    This is the correct link:
