Growth: some of us measure it physically, some measure it mentally, and some of us measure it spiritually. In theory, there is no growth when an individual stays stagnant or gets too comfortable. This past week, I grew as an individual: spiritually, mentally, and physically. Madsen and myself took a trip to Lewisburg, West Virginia, to visit her old stomping grounds, Camp Alleghany for Girls. This would be a trip of many firsts for me, and I am thankful to have gotten the opportunity to get out of my comfort zone and get completely caught off guard. I did not only get to see what it was like to sleep in a outdoor tent, eat a fried green tomato sandwich from Jim's Drive In, and experience what it would be like to live in complete darkness. I got to take my camera with me to share these experiences with you all. My hopes are to inspire some of you who may have skepticism about getting out of your comfort zone, to release those inhibitions, and get uncomfortable.
This week I will be posting photos from the four-day trip, in day-by-day order. For the final day of posting, there will be a slideshow of all the images taken in my "Old Skool" filter I created on Adobe Lightroom. All photos, and the filters are available for purchase, for inquires contact LegalTrappingProductions@gmail.com.
Growth and comfort do not coexist.
