Prioritize and execute, thats the goal this coming month. I got spread out too thin this month. I made some good improvements mentally and feel in a good place. But, no stopping.
“No points for busy. Points for successful prioritization. Points for efficiency and productivity. Points for doing work that matters. No points for busy.”

The Exposition Park Rose Garden in Los Angeles is a pretty instagrammable place. It seems to just be that, a garden filled with different roses that could use a break from the LA sun. Jona, Aaron, and I all went to the garden and snapped some photos, it was a good time. I won’t be going back but it was a fun experience with friends. Also, 4th of July happened and I was able to luck out and get a long exposure photo on it.
Exposition Rose Garden, Rooftop of the 1702 Studio, the beach, and noisy construction outside my apartment, this was a fun month of photos. I think I am going to do more black and white moving forward, the feel I am going for in these photos isn’t standing out as much as I would have liked. Either way I like seeing what my eye catches, it’s a good test.
