Photo Journey by Lanihttp://lani.myfotojournal.com/Most recent blog posts from lani.myfotojournal.comen-usTue, 13 Sep 2016 05:32:25 +0000Instruments of Changehttp://lani.myfotojournal.com/2016/sep/13/instruments-change/<p>Once again, I have been invited into <a href="http://www.binnersproject.org/">The Binner&#8217;s Project</a> to photograph the work they do. &nbsp;This time, I spent time with a few binners as they binned for items that can be used for the Instruments of Change &nbsp;project. &nbsp;Eventually, the items they found will be made into instruments and used to create beautiful music. &nbsp;Amazing, right?&nbsp;&nbsp;:)</p> <p><img

2014), Noah&#8217;s grandpa turned 90.&nbsp; Noah, graciously, brought his fiance (that&#8217;s me!) to meet his grandparents and celebrate this monumental occasion.&nbsp; Noah&#8217;s father and his lovely wife Steph joined us from France.&nbsp; We assumed that they came all that way to cook us really delicious meals (so delicious),but apparently they also wanted to join the&nbsp;celebrations!</p> <p>Every year, on his birthday, Noah&#8217;s grandpa performs his feat of strength.&nbsp; Check out the big stir grandpops created on Reddit on his<a href="http://www.reddit.com/r/funny/comments/1fdqjx/ending_the_my_dad_will_beatup_your_dad_arguments/"> 89<span class='ord'>th</span> birthday</a>!&nbsp; This year was a bit shakier health wise, but apparently he couldn&#8217;t let us leave without showing off his pole&nbsp;moves. </p> <p>So after cake, a walk on the beach and supper by the ocean, he showed us that he&#8217;s still got&nbsp;it.</p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/lani/photos/2014/04/08/large_48a572d7e18506a4e3dd.jpg" /></p> <p><img
