"I’ve wanted to talk about this for so long but I’ve been scared about being able to find the right words. But! None of that matters. It comes down to something very simple. Diversity matters.
My name is Nimisha. I’m an Indian first generation woman living in New York. I work in the Animation industry making animated films. When I’m not watching movies, I’m spending every moment I can in the outdoors with a camera in my hand. (Or playing board games... that too) Throughout my entire life of watching films, I always wondering why there weren’t people like me in the movies I watched. Fast forward to present day. With a new love for being outside and re-found love for photography, I found myself thinking the same thing. Why aren’t there more people like me in the film and outdoor communities?
We sure had a Pacific Ocean romp today in Santa Barbara... we met an awesome family @notailsallowed - of which are indelibly marked upon the imprinting of Miss Thing’s formative life as a free range water dog... thankfully, both Cody & Michelle were kind enough to not make fun of me while I freaked out about not letting Althea off the leash... but the same could not be said for Macie & Cooper - 2 stunning Aussies... such amazing dogs. Macie is Althea’s first friend. .. I will post photos ... we even bumped into @goodestgirlreese ! serendipitously.... I will post some of those photos too ... Bc Reese looks just like Althea... if I learned one thing (and I learned a lot today), it is that Althea is NOT even near the Alpha letter... she lost every fight ... every one...
Not Hari, but bear with me. This is Marley and yesterday would have been her thirteenth birthday (the date is fitting given her namesake). She was a good girl and with me for so much of my life. She was the OG adventure dog and came everywhere with my family. This is the first year she isn't with us for her birthday and she is missed.
