I clicked this photo because I was impressed by the light rays breaking in through the clouds (a wonderful phenomenon). So far, I’ve mostly failed at capturing details of light.
Today I felt hopeful with my photography and watched a few videos on how to improve things. The photo is quite enhanced through lightroom and I feel the sky is overdone. I don’t believe in unrealistic photo editing for myself, but I also appreciate post-processing for the artistic expression it allows. I feel divided.
At university I met someone who said that she feels like the trees are reaching up to the heavens in praise of God. I would have been happy to talk about how the trees love God, but she wanted me to be a part of their cult. So, I had to walk away.

Today it’s a year since my official graduation. I avoided the whole graduation ritual last year so I collected the diploma the day before yesterday. I don’t understand why people think the ceremony is the most important thing. How about the classes, the assignments, and strange people you meet? It’s been a great year off formal education. Lots of love, photos and a different kind of learning.
