It’s been a busy travel time for me – two weeks ago I travelled to Los Angeles for five days, tomorrow I’ll be returning there for a few more, and a day after getting home from that trip, I’ll be heading to New York City for five days, one of my most favorite places to be!
In NYC, I’ll be participating in a two-day street photography workshop with a woman whose photography has captured my heart since I first became aware of her work about a year and a half ago – Valerie Jardin. She hosts workshops in Paris, Rome, New York City, Amsterdam, San Francisco, Vancouver, and more for small groups (usually about 10 people), and they quickly sell out. I happened to be online last year when she posted this one – I was so nervous it was going to close before I could enter my information! But the internet gods were with me, and now, in just a few days, I’ll be meeting her and soaking up everything she has to offer.
As if that isn’t enough, at the end of the workshop, I’ll be meeting up with a group of my fellow Monochromia photographers for the weekend! Such an incredibly talented and fun group of people, I can’t wait to reconnect with those whom I’ve met before and to meet those who I haven’t. Can we say “pajama party” at the Hilton? 🙂
So here’s to fun times, friends (new and old), and lots and lots of photography!
