One Friday, the Good Friday before Easter, in fact, Kingston and I were on our way home from Georgetown and we passed this amazing yellow bush in a Walgreen's parking lot. As soon as I saw, it, I turned the car around. It was so vibrant, that it just begged to be photographed. Kingston wasn't really feeling getting out of the car, but I needed a subject, and he sweetly humors me all too often. I didn't even make him put his shoes on, I placed him in the bush and took a couple of snaps and on we went. I posted it to Instagram (my FAVORITE app--you can find me both here and here) and that was that.
Then, maybe a month or so later, I was contacted about this image and the next thing I know, I'm being featured in Apple's Shot On iPhone 6s campaign. Talk about surreal. The moment I read that congratulatory email, the tears came. I was shocked, excited, and elated-because I wasn't even sure what it was all about in the beginning. And then, to all of a sudden be a part of an international campaign...insane. And oh-so-awesome! Once I posted this news, along with the billboard locations, the pictures came rolling in. THIS is my favorite part of all of it. That my family and friends are sharing with their family and friends, rallying the troops if you will, to find my photo all over the world. THE. WORLD. People that I've never even met in real life are excited...for me. Oh gosh, I'm getting a lump in my throat just typing this. It's absolutely incredible to not only see an image that I took with my phone up in places I've only dreamed of visiting, but that I've had so many generous people that have cared enough to send them to me. Here are most of the images that I have received. I am still working on getting some of them loaded in, and I'll continue to edit the slideshow, as I receive them. NOTE: the mobile version viewed from cell phones does not have the location/photographer caption.
