SHOUT OUT! - rightOut photography -

Wow! Not gonna lie, I almost forgot it was Monday; further to that, I almost forgot to SHOUT OUT! - it would be a sad day, wouldn't it?? I knew you'd agree.

The term 'shout out', according to Wikipedia, is "a greeting or acknowledgment of a person, group, or organization of significance. It is often done as a sign of respect, synonymous with "giving props".
I have decided that each Monday, I am going to post a SHOUT OUT! where I will highlight some of the sweet local talent in and around BC. Why Mondays? you ask. The answer is simple: we can all use a little something to look forward to at th
e beginning of yet another work week (haven't I retired yet??); and if you're anything like me, your "please entertain me" internet surfing habits skyrocket on Mondays.
Why only BC artists? One, because I live here. And two, because this province is loaded with artists of all kinds; so whether it's a painter, singer-songwriter, photographer, or ______: if you or someone you know wants to be featured in my weekly SHOUT OUT! let me know!

This week's SHOUT OUT! is actually a reader submission! How cool is that!? I do have a few other artists I want to get to, but wanted to make sure that diligence was rewarded! So here you go Linsday, first reader submission! YOURS! Woot!

Lindsay (one of afterthoughts' lovely visitors) wrote me an email almost immediately after I posted my first SHOUT OUT. I was led in the direction of Angela from rightOut photography; and I have to say it was as sweet a visit as Lindsay said it would be! Like any photographer, she's got her own unique style and way of looking at the world. Whether you want family photos, baby shots, wedding day memories or want to boost your portfolio; she appears to do it all! Although photography is something she has recently stumbled into, I think it was a good place for her to fall!

i picked out my favorites from her blog: here they are!

So with people like Angela at the helm of our inspiration: here's to the dreamers, the brave ones, and the risk takers- you see that limb out there? Start walking.

My sister-in-law is in this post! I love the interconnectedness of the blog-world (or wait, maybe that's the real world?)

And also, great shout-out!
