Photo Journal

March 31, 2019

I’ve been out on a week’s worth of Picture Walks and haven’t had time to write a blog about any of them.  Today, though, I woke up with the brilliant idea that maybe I could just do a ‘photo journal’—lots of pictures, not much writing. That way I could still share the pictures, but not spend hours and hours on the writing part. Perfect! And even though I’ve posted many of these pictures on Facebook already, I feel like a blog is less fleeting, more like a book– and that I’ll still be able to find it a year from now! Enjoy.
