As we draw near the close of the pandemic (at least it’s starting to feel that way), I can feel my heart and mind begin to open up to the possibility of letting my guard down just a bit. Both Caitlyn and I are fully vaccinated and it seems that more and more friends and family have at least gotten their first poke. We are starting to let ourselves do semi-normal things again, including spending time with friends. Now that everyone’s got kids, the get-togethers are much rowdier than alcohol could ever imagine.
I struggle a lot with photography and the point of it all when everyone seems to own a camera and post incessantly online. I hardly ever go on Instagram anymore. But it’s moments like these that remind me of my “why”. Perfectly imperfect snapshots of those closest to me, that will never occur exactly the same again. Thanks friends.
