Day 7: Frankie

“Finishing things. When you take on something and you finally complete it…Like this coffee shop would be something cause it’s just an idea and you finally got everything in place and then it’s there.”

Day 8: Kristin

“Delight, to me, is coffee!”

Day 9: Corey

Me: So, Corey, what does delight mean to you again? I have my recorder on now.”
Corey: “Magic [The Gathering] and coffee. Tabletop games. Light roast.”

Day 10: Steph

Me: “What did delight mean again?”
Steph: “Enjoying things with people that I love…just different activities and going places and doing things ‘cause it’s one thing to do things by yourself but it’s a completely different experience when you’re bringing your family and your friends to do things with you. So turning 30 is not a huge deal because I get to celebrate with other people.”

Day 11: Katie

“To me, delight means things in their simplest forms. And for me, that typically means nature. Just being outside, in nature, with the plants and usually the animals…just simplicity, things in their rawest form.”

 

Day 12: Kevin

“[Delight is] when things are as they should be.”

100 Days of Delight Photography: Week 1

Phew! This week marks the first in my 100 day project, where I am taking photos of people each day and asking them the question “What does delight mean to you?” (To find out more, check out this blog post.)

Each week, I’ll post a photo and quote from each person featured from the previous week. (For more photos and interview quotes, check out my Instagram feed.)

Here’s week 1:

Day 1: Hijab and Tayyaba

H: It means making silly jokes, spending time with my best friend, looking back at old memories and laughing at it.

T: My classes are really hard and anytime I’m having a bad day and feeling stressed out, and I’ll just text her…and she’ll just say one thing and it’ll brighten my day…I’ll get so happy.

Day 2: Nate

“Delight is basically, to me, when you’re rewarded by something that you yourself are either a part of or completely involved in—something that you know you created and a rewarding feeling you’ve given yourself.”

Day 3: Andrew

Andy2

Me: “What was the last thing you did that delighted you?”

Andrew: “I finished a really great book.”

Me: “What was the book?”

Andrew: “It was on the Cuban Missile Crisis [laughs] but it was written really well but it showed that sometimes things are not as cut and dry as we think they are.”

Day 4: Beth

“I think delight, to me, is being with loved ones. I think of just hysterically laughing with my nieces and nephews and enjoying the people that you love.”

Day 5: JonJon1

“Spending time with people that I love…and Blejwas shirts.”

Day 6: Kyle (aka my delightful husband)

Me: “What makes you happy, baby?”

Kyle: “Adventure…and shiny, pointy objects.”

25 @ 25: Spilling Shadows

I was poking around the Shakepeare Theatre on a sunny day a couple of weeks ago.  There were long shadows everywhere.  My shadow was so long, it looked as if it were literally falling down the steps of the theatre.

25 @ 25: Boots and Blossoms

In mid-March I went to the fantabulous Longwood Gardens.  While there I took quite a few pictures (about 500 by the end of the day).  Here is one with my boots near early Spring blossoms.

Wondering what these 25 @ 25 shenanigans are about?  Read the first post here!
