I love this story about photographer Dave Puente. He’s begun a project taking free “porchtraits” – photographing families from a safe distance on their porches during this time of sequestering. He says it feels like a win/win – people really like the connection and the opportunity to talk about what’s happening for them, and he, too, has a chance to connect and offer the gift of his photography.
Here’s a brief video where he talks about this project, along with a number of his photos.
I’m inspired by his initiative, and grateful to him, and everyone who is finding innovative ways to connect and share love and kindness during these times. Amidst the challenges there is still very much to celebrate and appreciate. What about you? What’s lighting your heart today? What beauty have you seen? What kindness have you noticed? Do tell – you know I love to hear.
