Perfect Timing is a weekly photography project by two friends who met in college, became roommates and have been close ever since. We share a love for languages and travel, and although we’re from the same southern state, we now live on different continents, balancing a demanding work life with a private life. We both agree that everything happens for a reason, whether we see these moments as positive or negative at the time, propelling us ahead or slowing us down. We hope you will join us each week, as we share little moments of Perfect Timing with you.
Last Saturday I took a day for myself. I can’t remember the last time I did that and didn’t pick up anything even remotely related to work. Ok, I did have to answer a few emails, but I took care of those first thing in the morning. I went for a long run and then headed down to Venice and Santa Monica for the day. It was a beautiful fall day (for what we call fall here in SoCal, that is), and lots of people were out and about. It felt good to visit some favorite shops (and a few new ones) and just do whatever I felt like–no schedule, no place to be. Just me, bumming around for an entire day. It. felt. good. I saw this VW bus on the side of Ocean Park Boulevard in Santa Monica as I was heading over to the beach before sunset. Every time I see one of these classic VW buses, especially here in SoCal, it makes me think of the cliché surfer lifestyle… not a care in the world and having a good time in nature’s surroundings. It pretty much sums up my day off, relaxing and without commitments. It was fun while it lasted!
Mary of Moe-Digger Photography and I became friends in college after we realized how much we had in common. We each grew up with three brothers, played sports and studied history, languages and cultures. I still remember our SLR cameras and our love for shooting with film. We have shared many wonderful experiences together over the years and have supported each other through some of the most significant moments in our adult lives. I am excited to take on this project with her and I hope you’ll check out her Perfect Timing photo this week, too: Savour the Moment
