Summary of 2017 (Part 1)

The London Bus

It has been a couple of intense weeks with multiple projects in the works. I have to admit that I am looking forward to a holiday slow down and my usual year-end photographic self-confession. It is going to be fun, especially this year. This December...

Krakow with the Fujifilm X100F
