We asked you to show us someday.
On a recent trip, I was reminded yet again that it’s never too early—or too late—to start planning for your future. Several of my traveling companions were over 80 years old and one was 101! Our journey included hikes and horseback riding, as well as walking along riverbanks and waterfalls. What I admired most was their adventurous spirit—it’s how they had lived their whole lives. It was clear that they had not waited around for someday to happen, rather they had forced the issue and met it on their terms.
It’s not easy to show the future in a photograph. It was a creative challenge for some, while others really enjoyed pushing the boundaries of the concept. Thanks to everyone who tried and who shared their efforts.
I learn something new every time I run an assignment, not necessarily technical aspects about photography, but things about humanity—about each other. Particularly when the assignment dictates that you think more about your emotions than your exposure—concentrate on your feelings rather than your focal point. It's moments like these that I truly feel part of a community.
