                                                                • Lots of pink
                                                                • First sunrise from a boat
                                                                • Many more days outside of Marquette
                                                                • & five straight days outside of Michigan
                                                                • Playing with camera movement
                                                                • Seeing smoke from Canada wildfires

                                                                July Musings

                                                                July is a complete month, the most complete month of 2019. I sit hear feeling incredibly fulfilled. This project has been incredible, and I’m becoming a little more critical of the photos as I try to find more variety and new locations. But this project actually has so little to do with the photos. The photos are simply the tangible evidence that I did this each morning.

                                                                Part of the project is about getting outside, working on commitments, taking on a new creative pursuit, getting back to writing and photography, and blah blah blah. Those are the things I’m setting out to do, but what’s happening is a different story.

                                                                So what is really happening? Creating an environment and lifestyle to allow for growth, experiences, precense, and openess to whatever life presents. I don’t know if this month would have happened without this project, and what’s happened this month has nothing to do with sunrises.

                                                                • [Redacted]ming
                                                                • Bea (this has its own bullet list, multiple bullet lists)
                                                                • Stone skipping on ESPN
                                                                • Do the [redacted]
                                                                • NPR interview
                                                                • Joe P
                                                                • New best month at the shop
                                                                • Experiencing profound sadness (and making it healthy)
                                                                • High quality family memories

                                                                Each one of these bullet points is full of multiople stories and experiences and learning moments.

                                                                August, I dare you to beat this.


                                                                Looking back on July, I’m really proud of this set of photos, and a deep collection of outtakes this month, with lots of variety.


                                                                I’ve been taking notes on larger themes that are developing during this project. One is having a relationship with Lake Superior, and sleep for that matter. Another is the cliche of sunrise and sunset photography. And yet another is beginning your day with nature.

                                                                However, a new theme is forming. An unexpected theme. I don’t know what or where it will go, but it is exciting. And that theme is [redacted].
