I just love this. One day when l I’m old and frail I will share this with my grandchildren and show them the amazing, inspiring community their grandmother was lucky enough to stumbled into. Thank you so much Brandon and Huy.

Freaking hell, this blowed me away.

At first when I saw the short movie was about 25 minutes, I sighed. When it was over I thought, is it already over..? These photographers and the situations they find themselves in are mindblowing. This is what I want too.
But I’m not quit there yet. The budget will come when its ready. Maybe this year, maybe next year. I really look forward to my breaking point (which sounds a bit weird, I know). Thank you for showing me this movie, I am thankfull. Already.
