littlecoal While my wife and I were talking to our kids tonight, the topic of homelessness locally, within the U.S. and around the world came up and we were once again reminded at how incredibly blessed we truly are. Not only for the amazing opportunities we have experienced over the last year, but also the friends new and old we have doing life with and the simple fact that we have a roof over our heads. (About the photo: While watching my daughter's soccer practice last night, this beautiful balloon drifted overhead. As practice wrapped up, I dropped her off at our home and drove to grab a shot before the sun set and the balloon landed in a nearby field. The best part, the community of people that popped up within moments. The pilot, Jake, if a great friend of my IG friend @jilly_ibsen and has worked with her husband for years. As I chatted with the crew I saw someone down the road shooting also, only to realize it was my boys @brant5 and @ohsnapjeff cofounders of @igers_toledo. Guys I didn't know several years ago are now good friends, because of our shared creative passions. Great seeing you!) 5h

littlecoal As a finalist in the #epic360contest, @hp sent me a x360 and told me to #bendtherules, but I bet they didn't think I'd take "tent" mode so literally and put my little friend @hobbes2485 inside. (There are 14 finalists, so I'd love it if you tagged a friend and helped vote with a "like". Thank you!) 3d
