On Saturday NOWportrait visited the Leeds Waterfront Festival to inspire people to be out meeting strangers around the waterfront. It was such a fantastic day and NOWportrait photographers are posting their photos as I type! Pop over to the NOWportrait Facebook group to see who everyone met…
I want to introduce you to Robert. I met him when I arrived at Leeds Station – I saw his bike and and thought ‘Le Grand Depart!’. Robert was on his way out for a day trip but had ten minutes before he caught his train. We had a great chat and Robert told me his amazing story and how he was alive despite all odds. He is now someone having adventures and creating exciting goals for himself, and completely living life to the full, every single day. What a way to live life!
I was so happy to have met Robert and felt inspired for the rest of the day. Meeting him reminded me that stepping out of your comfort zone and taking a risk creates all sorts of possibilities in your life and he reminded me of why NOWportrait exists! Saying hello to someone new and taking 10 minutes for a chat is inspirational. Give it a try!
If you live in London and would love to come along to a meet up – you’re in luck. On July 6th we have our 3rd NOWportrait meet up and we’ll be starting from Lancaster Gate. It’s a great way to meet like-minded people and to share the strangers you meet! Check out the event page to register and join in.
If you’d like to organise your own NOWportrait meet up where you live, drop us a line and we’ll support you to do that wherever you are.
