Here we are wrapping up Week in the Life – I had 3 fabulous days away in St. Augustine and I balanced capturing the every day things with the fabulous things in a new place.
Pictures of the hotel room, the view, the crabs and of me taking photos sums up this day, and this trip. Don’t be afraid to hand off a camera and make sure your story is told with you in it.
Day 8 was exploring a historic city. I captured some of the signs of some of the great places we went. I handed a camera off to our train driver/tour guide to get a shot of us on our empty train. We spent a lot of time on this train and it was incredible. I captured us walking across the bridge – something we did often. I made sure to capture details and parts of the story that might not have been captured if I wasn’t doing Week in the Life. Train stops and restaurant signs and bridge cross signs are important parts of a story.
Day 9 – the final day. I captured one last look at our view, breakfast, unpacking and picking up the dog – oh and just a little shark we happened to see swimming outside our room in the Bay. I also liked that I captured some of the makeup I wore over the course of Week in the Life. It will remind me what I had, what I wore and my go to palettes. It’s super fun to go back and see what you were doing at this point in time. This part of our story is important and now we have it.
One piece of advice I will give – once in a while pop out from behind the camera so you don’t miss seeing all the moments in person. It’s great to have these memories on film but having them in your mind and heart is important too.
Now that my take on the Week in the Life project is wrapped up I’ll start putting together pages and videos! I’ll also be documenting this amazing trip – the food, the signs, the details, the memories and moments that made an adventure. What would you like to see? Have you ever been on a life changing adventure?
