A little over two years ago I attended a photography conference that changed my life. The thing is, I was incredibly nervous to go. I hardly knew anyone that was going and the idea of meeting so many new people was overwhelming to me at the time. But…I talked myself into attending and will forever be grateful that I did.
While I did learn a good amount at the conference, the thing that made going so worthwhile was the friendships I began over those three days. I now have a community of friends who I can turn to - in life and photography. Without a doubt though, the greatest friendship I made was with Alex. We met because of photography, but have much more than that in common. I am so glad to have her and Danny and Emma in my life (in our lives).
Last February (basically a year to the day of meeting each other) Peter & I went up to Maine with the three of them. This year we decided to keep the winter-trip tradition going and we went to Provincetown for a weekend in March. The hope is to continue our mini winter vacations going (even when they move out to the west coast (so sad)).
We rented a house on the bay side. For most of our time there a fog hung over the tip of the Cape that made everything so beautiful. Alex and I brought our cameras along, of course. On Saturday we all took a ride and explored a few spots in the area. Peter & I love Ptown and thought we had explored most every nook and cranny, but Alex showed us these amazing dunes that we had never been to before. We went down to the moors too, where we met two clammers - Paul & Mike. I definitely want to go back and talk to them again. So much fun!
Here's my take on the weekend. Take a look at Alex's too!
This next photo is my favorite from the weekend. Imagine my mix of disappointment and excitement when I realized Peter took it - not me. The scale is just awesome.
Looking forward to planning next year's adventure!
