The Fire Within Us

Newer Older

Pierceton, Indiana, USA. July 2012.

If there is one thing I took away from the last weekend it was the creative, energetic drive. As Joel wrote to us so wonderfully, we have ignited a forest fire within each other's hearts and minds.

The first night of the meetup I snuck away after dinner to take a self portrait as the sky dimmed. The truly lovable Cameron B. came out to capture the sky and took a couple shots of this as well.

It never ceased to pleasantly surprise me how quickly I befriended everyone. A hello was the spark that made our friendships catch light. It wasn't until I met these people that I realized how much oxygen and beauty lies around me constantly. I'm letting my flame eat it all up!

Keep up with behind the scenes and updates from the last weekend on my Facebook and Website. I'm working on my blog to provide more detailed descriptions and to share all of the stories I've collected this weekend.

Also, find everyone's pictures from the Meetup here.

    Chelsea.. As everyone has already said, that sky is IN-CRED-IBLE, but I love the fact that you took advantage of it and made it into a dramatic story-telling element in this photo. All that empty space surrounding you really lets us focus in on you and all the amazing different textures and lines in this photo.. gah, this is absolutely sdfkjhsdfkjsdhfskdjfhsdk, Chelsea!
