sweet tunes played in the car as we escaped from the city. we spent the day together, explored hidden trails, climbed over boulders, jumped over crevices, ran away from flying bugs, laughing and screaming all at once, and finally caught our breath on the beach of a twinkling lake. the mighty wind was upon us and made us sniffle, but there was passion and stillness emanating from all of us. something mighty like the wind engaged our senses, lifted us and carried us from place to place until the sun came down. and with it, our energy.
a day like this doesn’t end without a new reason for why i am a photographer. i got to share joy and laughter while feeling and exploring alongside noell and tommy. i got to see their essence, their beautiful spirit. and went home that night a better person for having been in their presence.
