But there were a few good things and those are the things I'm holding close. Silver linings reveal a clearing sky.
I decided the many months of mainly shitty things were mostly necessary for my long-term good. Maybe.
During these months I didn't shoot nearly as much as I normally do, or wanted, but I did try new things in terms of subject and format, and I think my photography improved some because of it.
Here are some of them.
