Hi, how was your week?

I kind of noticed this last year, but I think I am either developing a seasonal allergy, or there is some different kind of pollen up here that I have seasonal allergies to.

However, in the meantime, I’m going to try some allergy meds and hope for the best.

When I was in 11th grade I took film photography as an elective, and it took me longer than the rest of my classmates to get the hang of portraiture.

And I’ve never forgotten how those images made me feel, rest in peace Patrick.
