Recently I had a “blind date” with a fellow photographer (and now, friend). Its sort of funny to call it a blind date, but really that’s the closest thing to it. You have a friend-of-a-friend-of-a-friend that you’re “friends” with on Facebook and you follow on Instagram and you see their tweets and you know where they are on Foursquare and you’re emailed every time they make a new blog post… yet you’ve never even met. Okay, maybe that’s a little exaggerated, but you get the idea.
I have met many cool people because of Instagram and Facebook and I’m just thankful for the opportunity to get to know other talented people with similar interests.
Diana Odom is a photographer from (and I say “from” loosely) Ocean Springs. You can view her work here. We met up, talked for a while and went on (as she puts it) some light urban adventures. Here are a few of my photos from the day.
