The last month I’ve found myself in a place I love, but that didn’t allow me to do the things that I love. Which was difficult, for many reasons. I’m not ashamed to admit that I was let go from that place; I look at it more as a free pass to resume loving the place the way I did – connecting with people on a more intimate level and photographing moments that make me feel and that connect me to the surrounding world.
The photos I’m sharing with you today were taken on a warm summer day, with people I care for immensely. We drove around South Whidbey, using different locations as our backdrop. The light was contrasty, as the sun was preparing to retire for the evening. This is my least favourite quality of light, but that dislike balanced my like of the experience. Balance is a good thing.
The time spent with these people on this day will remain in my memory for quite a while. It was a good day.
