Walking around my college town during a visit with friends. This is the first time I've processed any of the jpegs from that day; I like them.

Four years ago today...

In 2010 I was working as a preschool teacher but became more and more obsessed with my little Canon Powershot point-and-shoot, and - alongside my LG flip-phone, keys and wallet - I took it everywhere. Friends started telling me I had a good eye, but that I should learn how to use a real camera. So, for Christmas, I made a book of pictures for my parents and, in exchange, they got me a Canon 7D DSLR. Below are the book's spreads.
