Perfect Timing: Week 11

17 Jan

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.

Our trip to Vancouver was less than the photo op I’d hoped it would be. We’d like to go back in the spring or summer when the weather is nicer… and perhaps not so foggy? One of the days we were there, we were walking around and trying to beat the next onslaught of rain. I was already pretty bummed about the lack of photos from this strip, when I decided to start paying attention to smaller details as we walked. I came across this little gate at the top of the steps near the Vancouver Public Library. I really liked the details in the gate and the wear and rust with bits of white paint still showing through. The greenery around this small platform also made the day seem a little less dreary. It’s kind of what I needed to see at the time to make me look past the mild disappointment.

Week 11

{in the details}

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: Ivy
