PHOTO OF THE DAY: Meet My Friend Aida.


Meet my friend Aida.
Taken April 21, 2012 in Philadelphia, PA

Aida is an amazing woman and I’m proud to call her my friend.  She’s a loving wife, mother, artist, teacher and one of most generous souls I’ve met since I’ve been here in Philly.

She and her hubby Mike are very involved in community-building efforts in Mt. Airy and I was at their home taking some photos this past Satuday.  I hope that this image will inspire her to pick up the paint brush more often…she’s a natural.

    I really like this photo. Your photography is so amazing it tells stories. They each make me want to get to know the person. My Dad was a photographer and you have reminded me of the times I worked with him in his darkroom in the basement. Don’t stop.

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting! It’s a pleasure to have the support of friends like you. I see we have one more thing in common, both of our fathers having been photographers and all. As for your advice to not stop, I won’t… I can’t!

    I just love this. Your photography makes me want to meet each person and get to know them. You capture such character from each one. The black and whites remind me of the days when I helped my Dad in his darkroom.

    And she has awesome light to paint by! We definitely need more people like this in our communities, and in the world.

    1. Hey Amarie, thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts! The light in this room is amazing, and the view through the window is so peaceful. It doesn’t get much better than that.

    1. Aida! Thank you for being you. Your spirit, full of light and love, shines through in this photo. As I always say, I’m just the mirror reflecting back to those at whom I point my camera. As you can see by the comments and likes, other people see the same thing I do! 🙂 :::hugs:::
