I take the bus into Seattle for an exciting lunch date. I arrive a bit early and wander the streets around Pioneer Square. The rain has lessened to a drizzle and I wish now I had slipped my Nikon in my bag. But I have fun with my phone.
It is exciting to think about where this obsession of mine over photography has lead me. Sharing what I see in my viewfinder with other like-minded souls on social media and on my blog has widened my world for sure. I find myself over and over again, exposed to so many amazing and talented people. So, when I get the chance to meet one of them face to face, I jump!
Deb arranges for the three of us to meet for lunch; Chinwe is in town for work. After hugs and hellos, we all talk at once. Soon we are laughing and sharing bits and pieces of our lives and what makes our photo practices ours. We come at it from three different perspectives and yet. we are in so many ways, seeking the same things. I am fascinated to hear their stories of growth and creativity and learn about their gear!
To be able to get beyond their photos which flow through my feed on the web is glorious. To hear their voices and see their smiles is such a gift. I encourage you to reach out when traveling to the people you follow. Don’t be shy. You will be amazed at how willing most of us are to make it work.
Thank you ladies for a beautiful few hours. It was so much fun!
