whitlock ave

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.
