The Great Leap Forward
After graduating high school, I worked in a Walgreen’s photo lab for two years to help pay for college. This is when I really began to take pictures on a regular basis. I also began to like more of the photos I shot. I drove around to a wider variety of locations to get photographs and saw parts of Florida that were only road trip blurs in the past. This allowed me to get some emotional stability, as I’d just ended a tumultuous relationship that ended badly right as I was taking that first step into adulthood. It wasn’t pleasant, but I look back on it with a sort of fondness whenever I look at the photos from that time. A lot transpired both in front of and behind the lens.
