On Saturday, Oct. 4., instadfw partnered with the City of Irving and the Irving Convention Center to host an instameet in celebration of #WWIM10, the 10th Worldwide InstaMeet. While I’m not a morning person, I made the effort to drive 45 minutes to Irving, Texas a little before 6am. About 30 other photographers also arrived to meet the sunrise at the convention center. This building, which is reminiscent of a Jawa Sandcrawler, is a regular host to the several dallas comic con events.
Had a great time at the #AdobeMAX Inspire booth making old school art from up to 5 random objects or collection of objects. Each participant received an awesome t-shirt for their time; In my case, building a wireframe butterfly. Truly inspiring idea from the team at @adobe.
Just wish I picked up some #InspireMag t-shirts for both of my girls at home. Such a #greatdesign, I would have gladly paid for the tees.
On Tuesday’s Community Inspires Creativity session, Lee Hirsch, the award-winning documentary filmmaker and director of the moving film Bully, discussed the movement that grown from his film. In an exercise, he asked the crowd of AdobeMAX attendees to stand up. Hirsch then asked anyone who had never felt bullied, beat down, or made to fell different to please sit down. The audience of a few thousand remained standing. He then asked if they had bullied or stood by as someone was bullied to remain standing. Only a handful took their seats. This is the cycle the #BULLYProject is trying to end.
One of the most meaningful parts of #AdobeMAX was participating in #TheBULLYProjectMural. Attendees decorated a canvas title to stand against bullying. The final mural will be donated to the Bully Project. Those unable to attend AdobeMAX are invited to participate digitally at http://www.thebullyprojectmural.com/ (at Los Angeles Convention Center)

Was at a Spirit Halloween store in Tyler, Texas and they had a real live Zoltar fortune teller machine! You know, like the one in the movie Big. I love this particular Halloween store. While the spirithalloween stores are a chain, this one is independently owned and because of it, they try harder, like having a premium working Zoltar. Both of my kids liked their fortunes and, don’t worry, when they woke up the next morning, they were the same size.
