Winter was hitting me hard this past season. I don’t know what it was, but winter always has a way to bring me down into the dumps. Not only that, but it really challenges me as a photographer to find inspiration to photograph anything. Everything seems gray and dead, and being out in the cold is beyond unpleasant for me. Near the end of winter when some plants were trying to pop in, I tried to give myself the task of looking for spring. The goal was to find color in this monochrome season. But honestly, I was going insane and if I didn’t go outside, I would have started rolling on the floor due to boredom.
