A week ago I found myself in Salt Lake in a neighborhood I've never been with a few hours to kill. Luckily I had my camera in tow. I walked around a few streets in an old neighborhood, Whitlock ave in particular. I was amazed by the amount of different trees that lined that street, so I made a little project out of it. I felt a bit like a scientist, noticing the differences and similarities, documenting them, taking samples from each. It was a silly project maybe, but sometimes that's just what I need: a goal to get me to do something. As much as I love summer, I miss the motivation to learn that comes from structure. But the best part of summer (or not being in school) is the freedom to learn what I want to. As long as I have goals, little projects, and self motivated assignments, summer is rich.
that bouquet of leaves sat in a vase on my kitchen counter all week :)
what projects occupy your summer? I'd love to add a few new ideas to my list.
