on november 2nd, i traveled 1300 miles to meet 22 friends i had never met in person.
we spent a week in arizona laughing, talking, shooting, eating and just being together. i am honored to be included in this jpg family. people from all walks of life, from near and far, coming together through the love of photography. it is a funny, loving, caring, quirky bunch! and i wouldn't trade any one of them!!
our fabulous hostess, mary, arranged a week of memories i will never forget. our fearless leader, richard, kept us on track or some of us might still be there! i learned about my friends, my photography and about myself. and i had my super roomie, litz (i'm not sure how she put up with me)!
the places and subjects we photographed are nothing new or different, but seeing them through the eyes of friends teaches me. so many of the shots from this meet up are similar since we were at the same places at the same time, but the differences of composition, pov, cropping, lighting etc. are exciting to see.
seeing the world through these wonderful people's eyes is a gift.
