Hey all. This was a busy month for me, or at least it felt that way. The first months of the year always race by, which is rather disappointing. My photograph this month is a self portrait. I decided last year that I would take one around this time every year until someday I have a substantial collection. A very gradual project but I think it will be interesting to view my own growth in the future. So this is me, at 22, in 2016. This is my third or forth month living in Oregon and everyday I'm happier, when I'm not worried about money. The trees get fuller and more green every single day, more than I've seen in my entire life and it's mesmerizing. I'm so grateful. It's also been very warm and sunny with a few rainy days, which back at home it's still been snowing, something that I'm also glad to be away from. It's wonderful to be able to experience Spring for what feels like the first time. This month I didn't get to explore as much sadly, but I did get to photograph my friend Rachel for her blog quite a bit which allows me to explore parts of Portland that I haven't seen yet! Will I ever see the whole city? I didn't get to do much shooting outside of that which is never my favorite, but I did get to see Courtney Barnett at the Crystal Ballroom! This was my first time getting to attend a concert at this grand venue with strange and lovely architecture and it was spectacular. I met friends and everyone danced while the floor shook. A band called Alvvays opened for them, which was also a treat since I had been wanting to see them live for awhile too, they are so fun. I'm ready for May, ready for roses, ready to get out and explore more, ready to see more shows and meet more people.
Here are some photographs that I took this month!
Each month I will be posting a Photo of the Month! Also I'll try to work in any requested posts or things I find interesting to post! Enjoy!
