going back to photo number 4, i have a little story i wanted to share. i posted this on my facebook page the afternoon it happened, but i thought i'd re-share it here today: i was out for a jog this afternoon and while on my way, there was someone sitting in the distance who kept looking up every so often. as i approached them they asked “hey…. are you that photographer?”. right behind me dan was approaching and he mentioned “and you’re the videographer!”. we talked for a little bit before we went off running again, me with a big goofy smile on my face. it’s such a humbling experience when this happens. just a few weeks ago while i was going to get my car washed i gave the girl at the cash register my name and when she heard me her face sprung up and she started talking about being a fan of my work. i know it can be so daunting to go up to someone you don’t know to say hey. but i just wanted to say that i really appreciate it. it honestly and truly makes my day. thank you.
