FAQ: When will the #jumpforjoyphoto mural be completed?

FAQ: When will Jump For Joy Photo mural be finished?
A: My best guess: Im shooting to complete the Jump for Joy Photo mural by mid August. I have been working non stop preparing the photos for almost a week and still have about a week+ to go before applying posters to the wall.

If I can recruit some crafty volunteers to help past the posters together, everything will move a lot quicker… Any expert paisters out there want to get there hands dirty? :)

FAQ: Where is the mural located?
A: In the ally beside/on 161 East Pender Street.

FAQ: How long will the Jump for Joy Photo mural be up?
A: 1 year!

I was feeling like creating some photos and had no one lined up to shoot the other day, so I started looking for somewhere to do some selfie jumping photos and came across these power lines in a clearing in North Vancouver. Sometimes the least likely places provide an interesting backdrop… so I did a series of selfie jumping photos here. Fun!

Enjoy your day today.. get out and play!

the value of experiencing and enjoying the journey…

“…it’s amazing that the words “happy” or “happiness” or “joy” are not included in the definition of the word “success.” Unfortunately, our conventional definition of success is simply achieving the goal. Not enough emphasis is placed on the value of experiencing and enjoying the journey, building character, and learning life lessons along the way.” – Steve Rizzo See more at: http://success.com/article/why-we-need-to-redefine-success#sthash.1evJBbAm.dpuf
