Perfect Timing: Week 2

12 Nov

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.

As I spent last week in Chicago, I was able to get in an hour here and there of time to myself to hang out a bit in one of my favorite cities. I had been rushing from meeting to meeting, answering emails in between to keep up with work and catching up with clients and colleagues when I could. There was a public art display set up between Michigan and Columbus Drive with chalk for passersby to write about their ideal world. Some of the responses were silly, others political and others personal. This one caught my eye because of the phrase that the person wrote after “To create this world, I will…”. What a great reminder to slow down and enjoy the simplest things in life.

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: Grateful

    Love this – good DOF and love even more the message. I had just read an article about this public art display, so cool that you got a chance to see it.

      Thank you! Really? I’d love to read the article if you have a link to pass along. It was a really nice thing to see people taking the time to stop and read the thoughts people wrote, as well as to share their own. 🙂
