Daily Photo Tour - Connecting Through Common Ground

This awesome picture was taken by a friend we recently made. Ryan contacted us to see if we could meet up with him and give him a few photography pointers. We jumped at the opportunity and we had a fun time at Disneyland, sharing in our common interests of Disney and photography.

One of the things I love most about Disney is that it has the ability to bring people together and give them a common ground. Have you ever been at the park and just stopped to look around at how different everyone around you is? There are people from all over the world and all walks of life, yet we're all at the same place enjoying ourselves. As different as we think we are, Disney magic is able to bring us together by tapping into the best of humankind and showing us that there are things we can all appreciate about each other.

Ryan wrote about his experience with us over at the Microsoft Jobs Blog, check it out here.

Wonderful work, Ryan! Matthew, I can't wait to get pointers from you guys. I know what my new hobby will be! Just need to get a different camera.... :-) BTW, I enjoy what you write about your photos as much as the photos themselves. This paragraph is spot on! Cheers!
