North Carolina Woods, October 2007
At the risk of tooting my own horn a little, I have to share something that totally made my night. After the program, Jared and I gathered up my photos to take home and were walking out of the gym when this man stopped us. He said, "Oh I haven't seen these yet. Will you show them to me?" Of course I did and he wanted me to explain each photo--where I took it, etc. He was really complimentary. Turns out he is a professional photographer. He has done some workshops and such for different things. It really made me feel good to have someone who knows what they are talking about compliment my photos. Because I am FAR from a professional. I've taken all of one photography class 4 years ago and don't even have a nice camera. I have so much to learn. It felt so good to be validated like that by someone who knows his stuff.
