Perfect Timing: Week 4

27 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.

I was fortunate enough to take a trip this week with my husband to celebrate our birthdays (just a few weeks apart). We realize that this isn’t something we can do for every birthday, but it was important to us this year, so we worked and saved to make it happen. This shot is one I snapped at a winery we visited in Napa Valley. The striking green of the moss against the dark brick struck me. It’s something I could have easily passed by and not given another thought, but the growth against the man-made structure reminded me about the importance of taking time from our busy schedule to appreciate the beauty of things around us which are not the product of long hours in the office or weekends of staying inside to get that last project finished for a client. This type of growth is good for the soul.



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. Be sure to stop by her blog to see her photo this week. I personal love the B&W conversion and lines in it! Mountain of Steel.

      Thanks, girl! It’s not. I just shot this one with my 35mm. Love how close I can get with that lens, as opposed to my 50 mm. 🙂
