Project Panama Playground

Right now I am running an Indiegogo Campaign in conjunction with a group of people as well as my church to build a playground in a small town in Panama called Tonosi. It would mean more than you know if you could visit the link below, share it everywhere and often, and possibly even donate (its also tax deductable). Thank you so much, God Bless!

Trindie Picture Sesh #10: Big Bear

This past weekend I was blessed with opportunity to go to Big Bear with Epic, my church’s junior high youth group. This was my first trip as a youth leader. Serving an awesome group of kids, nomming down on some life changing food, and basking in God’s creation were definitely the highlights of the trip. Speaking of God’s creation, I felt a calling on my heart to capture a small glimpse of it:

"I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

"Could it be that the “do good film” / awareness video, fly in the eye story has lost its potency and impact because of the recent democratization and availability of film-making? Because we as a culture have now seen everything under the sun beautifully and horrifically portrayed? With the perfect emotional score and masterful story line? Could it be that we have become lazy and apathetic in the face of human suffering, service work and really getting involved because reality no longer surprises us and moves us? Or because it has become easy to watch it from our desks at work and share it of Facebook and think we are actually doing something? I wonder if the pendulum might swing the other way soon and the catalyst for change becomes something more human and tangible, where we are asked to sit in a room with it, face to face, heart to heart, where the story has the chance to penetrate us, challenge us and infect us. Well, at least that is my hope and new mission."

Trindie Picture Sesh #9: Location Scouting Up North

Well this is a fun story…so I signed up for a trip with my church and was going to go during Thanksgiving break, but it unfortunately ended up being cancelled. I was planning to go location scouting at a bunch of locations up north sometime within the next month or so but now that I had a free weekend I decided to call up my friend Keith and ask if he’d be down to go on a spontaneous road trip…and so it happened. So we drove over five hundred miles up North and camped out at a Sonoma Coast State Beach parking lot in the back of my car. Was definitely an interesting experience haha. First thing in the morning at like five thirty AM we drove up a hill nearby that looked down onto the location I was scouting. It was such a beautiful sight. Then we went on a hike and found some rocks that were perfect for climbing. We were bummin that we forgot some rock climbing gear, but there will be a next time. We also found an abandoned barn on the side of the road which was pretty cool. After that we drove south along Point Reyes which was also spectacular to see. We ate lunch at a sandwich shop there. The thing about California is there is always somewhere that looks like a different part of the world. California has all the climates for it. Then we continued on to the Marin Headlands and stopped at the highest viewpoint above the low clouds to see the Golden Gate Bridge and all of San Fransisco. I could also see from there the Headlands Institute where I made a field trip to in my Environmental Science class Junior Year of high school. After that we attempted to make it to Big Sur before sunset, which we kind of did but we didn’t stop anywhere. Finally we headed home and now I am sitting here waiting to go back and actually film some stuff there. One of the best weekends I have had all year. And here I present to you Trindie Picture Sesh #9 in all its trindieness:

Trindie Picture Sesh #7: Coastal Voyage

This week I went to Laguna on a photo adventure with my friend and coworker. The sun was directly above us so the lighting was pretty bad. But we got around it and I got to go in the water which was nice. I’m hoping to upload some video every week too, so hopefully I can get that up today. We just got a new camera at my work (the Sony NEX-FS700) and I did slash am doing some cool stuff with it. Stay tuned!
