Do you know how much fun it is, to meet up with someone who has the same passion as you? It’s amazing and exhilarating. We had a great weekend with my fellow muse Kirstin and her family in London. It’s funny, I took fewer pictures than normal, but it was a creative boost just to be around Kirstin with her enthusiasm, love of photography, warm personality and great sense of humor.
On Saturday, Kirstin took me with her to the dance center where her kids have lessons. She thought I would love the building – and she was right! It was great fun to wander the building for an hour seeking out interesting images. We discovered some new things, like this repeating reflection at the exit shown above. (Many thanks to Kirstin for “modeling” for me – that’s her in the image.)
We also found this fabulous ramp, a little nook Kirstin had never seen before. She thought her son would love it, so we brought him back after the lesson to show him. That’s when Kirstin discovered the fabulous light, and set up to take a few portraits. I had fun capturing the moment as well, with the dramatic contrast of light and dark.
I love that we can share this image from two points of view – Kirstin’s and mine. I love that we both discovered something new, in that one hour together at the dance center, even though she goes there every week. Inspiring things happen when you get people with a shared passion together, reflecting that energy back and forth. Don’t you agree?
