Today was the end of the Vancouver Jump for Joy Photo Mural #jumpforjoyphoto

To my surprise the Vancouver Jump for Joy Photo Mural was removed yesterday. I discovered it by chance as I passed by in the morning. I knew it would be coming down eventually and it was starting to come apart on its own but it was still quite emotional to see it coming down. I wish I’d had a heads up that it was coming down but I’m glad I chanced upon it before it was gone. A lot of love and joy from a lot of people went into creating that mural. It was an incredible experience and I’m grateful to Amalia Liapis and Murality for the opportunity to share my art with the world. The good news is… I can make another mural! All I need a new wall and I can get started :)

if you want something, go get it… @JenPastiloff #quote #gogetit #thetimeisnow

“…here’s the thing: nothing is guaranteed. So if you want something, go get it. If you love someone, show them. If you think you are owed anything beyond this moment, you are in for a wake up call of the hardest kind. The truest wake up call there is. And that is that there are no guarantees. That the time is now. That if we spend our lives saying “I can’t.” or “I am too busy.” we are missing the beauty.” – Jennifer Pastiloff

These guys sent in a great jump for joy photo to me via twitter while I was fundraising for the Vancouver Jump for Joy Photo Mural and it made me so happy that I went out to YVR do a few jump pics of them myself. They have some pretty awesome jumping moves.. they even made it into the mural!

I love it when people tweet their own jumping photos @jumpforjoyphoto or post them on Facebook, so if you’ve got some great jumping shots please share the joy – post away :)

Enjoy your day, takes some time to play!

This is Farrah. I met her in Los Angeles. This jump shoot was a special day for me as it was the first day Jump for Joy Photo Project was imagined. After a fun day on the beach doing jump photos together, we sat on her roof top in Venice, California and imagined how wonderful it would be to take Jump for Joy Photos around the world… :)

Farrah gave me a little gift with this note inside which always reminds me that anything is possible:

An idea is born. Jump for joy.

when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all… @buddha #quote

“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.” – Buddha

This sweet girl is Joslyn. I always love taking photos of kids jumping for joy, its sometimes more challenging getting the timing right because they follow thier own beat – which is so beautiful – and the act of jumping around and being joyful is so present in kids. Always fun.

You have to do hard things to be happy in life… @marcandangel #quote

“You have to do hard things to be happy in life. The things no one else is doing. The things that frighten you. The things others can’t do for you. The things that make you question how much longer you can hold on and push forward. Because those are the things that define you. Those are the things that make the difference between existing and living – between knowing the path and walking the path – between a life of mediocrity and a life filled with happiness and success.”Marc and Angel Hack Life
