    Ready, Set, Take the Picture


    My list of items to photograph.

    The time I started. I had trouble finding a inspiring tree, but I really liked this magnolia tree. I really like the bud because you see these little “hairs” and thought the bud was really cool to see.

    Waiting for My Time


    I sit in the dark closet day after day, waiting for my time to come. I hear my owner come and go. I hear the sounds of my friends, the toaster, the dishwasher, but she never comes for me. Wait, I hear her come into the kitchen. She opens the …

    Thoughts on the Theme
