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 invited by my good friend Rowena to join a Field Notes swap with 15 other women who enjoy using Field Notes notebooks. Each of us will choose a notebook from our own stash and will send it on to the next person in line on our group list. Everyone can use up to 3 pages in the notebooks we receive and we will write about the theme that the original owner of the notebook has chosen. I’m still trying to figure out the theme for my book, but I’ve chosen to use a notebook from my favorite line of Field Notes: Pitch Black. As I continue to consider the theme, I’m already looking forward to receiving the different notebooks over the next 16 weeks. If you’d like to follow along with the swap, check out #retrowturesfnswap1 on Instagram.
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. Check out Mary’s Perfect Timing photo for this week, too: Remembering.
