Connection


I’m photographing a wedding in June for some very good friends of mine. They’ve been together for-EVER and will for sure stand the test of time. There’s a nice ease to their relationship; they connect well.

Where am I going with this? Well, it’s super nice out, and instead of studying (shame on me) I went shooting around town, looking for things that “connect well” like my good good friends Tracy and Greg. I gave myself a photo assignment so to speak.... “things that go well together” and/or “things that connect” or "things that go together".

I did some brief reading on connection between people. Turns out, strongly connected people have more enjoyment in their life and work. Connection begins with yourself, but is dependent on others. The most important insight that the investigation has provided is that every relationship of connection can be strengthened by investing in ‘connection with yourself’, meaning that you have a clear image of what you want and what you are capable of. Connection with others is characterized by openness, genuine interest and the courage to express criticism.

So, here’s what I came up with for my photo assignment. It’s a bit of a stretch, but it was fun none the less.

Bubbles in the snow don't connect, but it was random and I loved it.

Fresh and beer always go together.

Awe, a man and a women. :)

Bar and Grill, soooo go together.
Coffee goes with anything.
Photography goes with...well, me!

Ha, a KNOT. Get it...tracy and greg are gonna tie the knot. Love it.

Obvious one here.

And I’ll leave you with this quote, that goes along with my flamingos in love photo. It comes from Corinthians 13:13 “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
