riding free

This past spring I had the honor to film Miriam Dell'Antonio on her way to the Equestrian Special Olympics in Taylor, Texas on April 22, 2012. Miri, who was diagnosed with autism at the age of 2, has been going to therapeutic horseback riding lessons for six years with the support of her adoptive parents Susan Jackson and Andrew Dell'Antonio. This is her story.

Oh, how I love Instagram. For a photography and film lover, it's the perfect combination. And it's fast. Take a picture, pick a filter, post it on your social media mogul -- all on one device. The photography world is changing so quickly. When I entered college five years ago, there was no such thing as an iPhone. Now, it's the camera that I use everyday.

Everyone knows that the internet was invented for cats -- cat photos, cat videos, nyan cat, cat fails, and the list goes on. So it's no wonder that cats have invaded our Instagram feeds, too. It's no surprise to me either, that of all the photos I post, the ones of my cat, Birdy, are the most popular. So here's to the Bird, and her very own hashtag on Instagram -- #birdythecat.
