A bit of narcissism?
2012 Summer - An iPod for a camera, and religiously I kept taking pictures each summer day in sunny Southern California, for 3 months. From twigs to massive architectures, I left nothing. The pictures were mostly a description of my day, rather than ones that could garner me praise. But the pictures were a step in the right direction.
2017 Summer - I hold a DSLR, not claiming to know all the technical details behind the device, but letting it teach me through experiments, and help me own and nurture a hobby.
Yes, midweek blues. I want Friday and fun soon!
