Without travel I had a chance to look with new eyes at the things around me. Here are some of my favorite photos from 2020.
It was a strange year. I’m craving new places, people, adventures. Looking back through these photos is bittersweet. There are some wonderful moments captured. Time I spent with my very favorite people ( my husband and our boys), but they also remind me of the days in early March full of agitated uncertainty and yet a confidence that this would all be over in a few months. 10 months later the monotony of it all can feel overwhelming some days.
These are some of my favorite photos of 2020 some because they put me back in a moment of joy and connection, some because I love the photo itself.
Most of the photos I took this year are at home and family, but my family will only tolerate being photographed so much. Many are of nature, I was forced to practice looking for beauty in my everyday surroundings. A lot are of our dog, he never tires of being photographed. Finally a few are of the few and far between shoots I had for the podcast and for Spartan Games - all at a distance and all outside - but a welcome variation in my routine.
On March 27th I was envious of the "pause" to reassess and learn I kept hearing about. I was fortunate enough to still be working, so I committed to a more active blog. This is my chance to think out loud about podcasting, messaging, story, nature, family and life.
