jorgeq It wasn't until 20 minutes after we randomly dispersed into small groups as we walked around Williamsburg during the @onabags & @charitywater Instameet yesterday that I fully realize who I was shooting around with. A lot times I think we create these imaginary barriers in our mind where we immediately think the idea of meeting someone who's work or business you admire is impossible simply because of their title.

In summer 2010, @tracyyfoster ONA with a simple vision: to offer style-conscious photographers and photography enthusiasts camera bags and accessories that complement their life and style. Not only am I a huge fan of their products but also for me how often can one say they've had the pleasure of chatting about travel, photography & life with the very person who founded a company who's product you utilized day in and day out. Pleasure meeting you Tracy! #tellstories #momenttele

jorgeq Courtney was one of the many awesome people I had the pleasure of meeting during today's Instameet hosted by the great folks of @onabags & @charitywater in Brooklyn.
I was absolutely intrigued when she shared the fact that she had lived in Bangkok from the age of 9-13 as her dad was employed with an American medical company. She's was originally born in Sydney where she eventually moved back to finish high school & attend university and now she lives in this huge melting pot that is New York.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. There's no such thing as strangers just people you haven't met yet.
Photograph taken using the telephoto lens by @moment_lens who were also in attendance at the Instameet & of course I didn't pass up the opportunity to shoot with them.

jorgeq One of the many events I had the pleasure attending as part of the Levi's Commuter Workspace in Williamsburg was Sam's Preferred Mode Photo Show where he exhibited a collection of photographs featuring Brooklyn cyclist and their bikes.

To my surprise, I actually encountered a few of the people that were featured in the book who had come out to support Sam's work. Visit jorgeq.com to view photos taken of the show. #commuter #vscocam

jorgeq I think learning does not stop when you graduate from school. In fact it's just the opposite. The only useful thing you learn in school is how to learn. I probably read and write more now than I ever did in school. 3w

jorgeq @Levis Commuter Collection. I've signed up for a few workshops that are available for anyone to RSVP for at a first come first serve basis. One of the ones I'll be participating in involves a bike ride around Brooklyn and I'll be documenting all my workshop experience here. #vscocam #commuter 3w

jorgeq One of the most important aspects of proper bicycle maintenance is many times also the most overlooked or ignored. Basic cleaning and proper lubrication is important to your bike's longevity.

As a bike owner myself, it was very informative having Dustyn Ellis give me a quick 101 on the basics at the new @levis pop-up Commuter Workspace. One of the many bike mechanics. Check out the place! Opening party this Tuesday July 8th! #commuter #vscocam
