2020 Photos of the Year

We could probably all write a book about all things 2020. But at this point I don’t have the brain power to write much. So I’ll just let my photos do (most of) the talking. This is a pretty random mix of photos that I really like and photos that are just distinctively 2020. 

Like most everybody, 2020 was a wild ride for me. Lots of time with my dog Roux on both adventures and napping next to me in the home office.  Getting hit by a tornado and having a large tree just miss my house. A sprinkling of sporting events including LSU winning the national championship and me finishing the Atlanta Marathon. Quite a few portraits where I tried to expand my lighting techniques. Building a garden in my back yard. Lots of trips to the Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo to hang with all the animals. And I feel like there are more photos of me in the mix than usual. So enjoy!
