I just returned from a whirlwind tour of Seattle, Vancouver, Tacoma, Oakland, and San Jose all for fun. I saw two forever friends*, eat so much delicious food, and rode a lot of public transportation. I’m home feeling so refreshed and filled up.
*Definition of a forever friend: A friend you don’t have to call/see for six months to a year and you can still start off each visit with what is really happening in your life and feel completely at home with them.
While I was in the PNW, I had the opportunity to hang out with Travis and Jaquilyn Shumate. I have been a longtime admirer of their work and asked them to do some one-on-one mentoring with me. I left the day with my head spinning (in a good way) and so much renewed vision for photography. During the day we met up with two of their extremely good-looking friends and snapped a few pictures. Thank you Jaquilyn and Travis for sharing your talents with me!
