In Seattle, “slow season” is almost over for photographers. For me, things slowed down a little but never quite to a full stop. So early last week, after finishing the last thing I had left to deliver, I put a call out in the Twittersphere for anyone “itching to go somewhere” to take photos “for the shear joy of it.” My friends Ryan and Amber jumped on board and the four of us drove east of the Cascades to enjoy the cool tones of Vantage, Washington. The boys did their own thing while Amber and I took way too many photos of each other. Amber was inspiring, with a serious case of “eye fire” and wind ripping through her hair. I can’t tell you how refreshing it was to be in a new environment, taking photos just because. It reminded me of what I love about photography and why I decided to make it my career.
I’m looking forward to doing this again… and again… and again… 🙂
