In 2010, I learned a lot. About life and trust. About photography and the future. About hurts and friends. And about special moments and regrets and art and people and about what I want. It was a challenging year as people close to me came and went in a way I never expected or wanted. It was learning of Laura’s cancer in the beginning of the year and losing her in the last half.
So, I don’t like goodbyes, but 2010, I’m glad you’ve packed your bags. You were fun at first, but hurtful in the end, and I’m pretty positive 2011 thinks things should be a little different. At least I hope.
So here are a few photos that take me back to the last few months.
(The above flower was taken with my Through The Viewfinder homemade camera. As you can tell below, I became a little obsessed with it).
In September, my mom and I had a garage sale. I was selling a Polaroid camera and discovered there was still film in it! A huge deal for that day. Here’s a picture of my mom.I dug through old boxes from college with Maggie. I had fun taking pictures of Jen and Maggie with the TTV.And on our last trip to Yosemite with Laura. Laura passed away on Oct. 24. Her memorial was beautiful and more of an art show.Maggie and I got out of town and went to Portland for a week. It’s now one of my favorite places.And we just celebrated celebrated Christmas. Yay.
