It’s been a full year. A heavy year filled with the stuff of life that can’t be avoided. It’s been a year of feeling all the feelings, over and over, and I’ve reached the end of it completely emptied. There has been joy and there has been grief. I almost didn’t put this post together as I’m so ready to get on with 2017, but I treasure all the other round-ups and traditions are important, aren’t they. My iPhone has continued to be my most used camera and I haven’t shot a single frame of film this year, which only saddens me a little. It’s been more important to be fully present to every day, and the photos and film clips I’ve captured have been enough. Photography will forever be like meditation for me and it honestly doesn’t matter what camera I use — all that matters is that my eyes are open.
