Well, finally, after blogging the adventures leading up to the photo field trip … the time has come, for me to blog this rather special field trip experience . We took the coastal road down to Santa Barbra, it was misty, a bit rainy and not quite what I had pictured in my head as California, I had really really been looking forward to seeing some sparkling golden sunlight .. but hey – it was beautiful never the less.
It was fantastic, hearing about everyones experiences, and hearing Yan, Dan, Paul & Mo’s, James’s talks. A big thank you to Eric from Lovely Ember Photography, for capturing those shots of Sara and I dancing 🙂
I struggle putting what I learnt into words. The big thing for me was realising that life has so many opportunities. That I feel like I have a little more sparkle for doing it. Thank you SO SO SO much to Whitney, and all the people involved in organising it, and to well, everyone there!
On the first night, we missed this flipping amazing inspirational talk by Dallas Clayton (we were driving down the cost) …. thankfully the amazing guys from FT have only gone and recorded it and shared it – Dallas’s talk spurred so many conversations here at home. My middle child l especially loves the book. Take a look at the video from the talk here:
One of the things that I loved about field trip was the whole vibe of making the most of all the opportunities and moments. Including the unplanned party that spontaneously occurred on the first night! (we partied late, and some of us ended up literally dancing on tables).
Day Two … started with the noise of the Poler Bear Plunge … that had been moved to a safer location… the beach had been rather stormy the day before – take a look at the vimeo vid below!
