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.
This week’s shot is a quiet moment I had to myself on Saturday morning. I haven’t had a relaxing Saturday to myself in several months, so it felt great to sit back, enjoy my coffee and appreciate the fact that I didn’t have to be anywhere by a certain time. It definitely felt like perfect timing, since the week ahead is one of the busiest of the year for me. While I was sitting and taking it all in, it began to rain–the first time since we moved to Southern California. It was kind of glorious, knowing the rain would not ruin any plans made. Feeling quite thankful for this peaceful moment.
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: Maß.
