Week 2/52

Perfect Timing is a weekly photography project by two friends who met in college, became roommates and have been close ever since. We share a love for languages and travel, and although we're from the same southern state, we now live on different continents, balancing a demanding work life with a private life. We both agree that everything happens for a reason, whether we see these moments as positive or negative at the time, propelling us ahead or slowing us down. We hope you will join us each week, as we share little moments of Perfect Timing with you.


As life gets busier and busier sometimes it is necessary to just stop. Get out of the city, away from the hectic push and pressure to do more and move faster. Stop and enjoy the beauty sounding us. Enjoy the stillness, the quite. And in these precious moments be thankful.

I knew from the moment we met that it'd be a lasting friendship. Kindred spirits. It was as if we had always known each other. Like family. My dear friend Madalena of my personal coffee break. When she's not busy running her own company, she is out exploring new places, jogging or enjoying a great cup of joe. I am sure you will adore her as much as I do. Please take a moment to check out her "Perfect Timing" photo from this week: "the simple things"

    Thanks Madalena! It's an Alpine Corps memorial in Mittenwald. We didn't know it was there. We were just out for a hike & came across it. It was so peaceful there.

    Absolutely fantastic, Mary! This interaction between light and shadow is fascinating. When will you be starting your second career?

    Thank you Stephan! When the time is right it'll happen. But I think I still have quite a lot to learn - another two years of school. Time is flying. We'll see from there where it goes and what happens.
