Daily Photos: May Edition

The eleventh month of my daily photo project looked like a roller coaster of high highs and low lows. The rhythm of creating a photo, now well-established, has become a processing tool. The days when I just click the shutter to capture something to check the block are fewer and fewer the longer I do this. The photos have become more of a journal as this practice has become well-established. I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I've enjoyed creating and compiling them.

May 28: These two. Gosh, I don't know how we would have survived our move or some of the challenges that May in particular presented without their friendship. They have become framily so quickly, and I'm so grateful for them. Aaaannnndddd they took me out for birthday brunch against this backdrop so of course I took their photo.

May 31: On May 26, my grandpa, Jim Bunning, passed away. He was a Hall of Fame pitcher, and on my way to pay respects, I was able to go to the Philadelphia Phillies' stadium to pay respects. During a game the weekend after his death, they hung his jersey in the dugout, and the team graciously allowed me to hang his jersey again to take some photos for myself and my grandma. It felt like a fitting way to honor my grandpa. He loved the game.
