Fast-forward 5 months: we moved back to Kansas, I started taking pictures of everything and everyone, and began looking online for other photographers in the area. Kathy has a photography group back in Washington who get together every now and then to inspire each other, teach each other, and go on group shoots! I felt like I really need to do that here, because being a photographer without inspiration is useless! So, I've been contacting other photographers in the area to start a group because I saw their photos and got the same feeling from them as I did from Kathy's. It hard to describe, but I've learned from my relationship with Kathy to always listen to that feeling/inner voice.
In really weird ways, I find myself having some sort of connection to each of these people. Mutual friends, acquaintances, interests, etc. Like, super freaky ways. And then today, it all came full circle when, through a series of links on photographer's websites, I found this.
It's JAKE. AND. KATHY.
Haha, wow. I flipped out. I don't know if this post even makes any sense, but I'm just IN AWE of how close we all are in the world. We all know each other through someone. We all have something in common.
The song says it best: "It's a small world after all."
