Technically speaking, this isn’t a “good” photograph.

That makes sense, because technically speaking I’m not a photographer. At all. At least, not a photographer of the caliber I’m seeing here.

But that’s okay, because to me, this photograph is peace, and peace is not something I find often.

After one of the worst days I’ve had in a while, this project popped up somewhere while I was mindlessly scrolled and I was immediately drawn in, just like I’ve always been drawn to photography as a form of expression. I’m excited to see where this ends up, and where I end up.

Hopefully somewhere peaceful.
