Reflections of Light
I will never tire of photographing the 4th of July fireworks at Oral Lake. It's one of my favorite traditions.

I didn't know that Christmas was going to be the last time that I saw my grandfather, but I am glad that I took a lot of pictures.

Merry and Bright
The holidays mean family, food, and disgusting beverages. My brothers do love their eggnog. *shudders* For the first time in three years, Christmas was celebrated in Lost Creek. I've missed the luminaries.

Thankful in the Mountains
Once again, Ben and Daniel went hunting the day before Thanksgiving, and once again they were successful. They spent the better part of Thanksgiving Day butchering and processing their deer, and I, like always, spent the better part of the day photographing them.

The Best Month
I am tentatively restarting my undergrad project on Favorite Places. My senior year, I asked friends, family, and strangers to identify their favorite places and spaces, and I photographed them. My friend Megan agreed to help me dive back in, and was incredibly patient on a cold, blustery day. Her favorite place is October, and there's no better place to photograph October than Homewood Cemetary on Devil's Night.
