5 Random Friday Finds

Find No. 1


I found morning light and fog on the way to the gym.

Find No. 2


I found great satisfaction in completing my first 365 project. 365 days of "From Where I Stand". I also found that I thought I would be sad that it was done, but in reality I like the fact that I don't have to post everyday on Instagram...at least for now.

Find No. 3



I found that while it is a great honor to have not one but two three photos chosen to be highlighted in the photo site Flickr's photo gallery Explore, it certainly increases the pressure to turn out high quality work.

Find No. 4


I found this biscuit tin at the Outdoor Antique Market this past Sunday. I have to say I love this shot more than the two that made Explore. Okay, just kidding this one made it in as well as of Thursday night.

Find No. 5


I found Summer!
