Friends. Photography. Adventure.

Afternoon Light

“How beautiful maleness is, if it finds its right expression.”

D.H. Lawrence

I have had the happiest two days hanging out with some of the best people that our corner of Twitter has to offer.

Today, a big group of us started the day celebrating Honey‘s birthday over brunch. Ever the opportunist, I got them all back to mine for a photography and fizz extravaganza where we got around half my February PhotoFest shots in the bag, plus a couple of extras for other participants. I can’t wait to show you our work because it is going to be a ridiculous and joyful month on Exposing40!

Yesterday was a less frenetic day hanging out with a new friend, photographing them for the first time. I do love the first time I photograph someone – building that connection and trust, getting to know how they move and look, and gauging their response to my sometimes crazy ideas. There’s some silly photos of them coming up for February PhotoFest but there was also the opportunity to make the most of the late afternoon sunlight for some relaxed peaceful shots that summed up the mood of the afternoon.

Sinful Sunday
