1/31 [Explored]

Today was the first day of my 31 Days of July project. I want to go back to pushing myself to take a picture everyday again. Today, with the help of my mom, I also bought a new lens! It's an 85mm f/1.8 and it is beyond amazing<3 Such a good investment.

  

I haven't really been in a good mood today. I've been emotional. Up and down all day. Crying on and off all night. Before this, I had gone into my basement and put my memere's favorite jacket on. I pulled it closer to my body and suddenly had the strength to go out and shoot. And boy did I shoot. 400+ pictures later and the sun finally went down. And while I was sitting there looking up at the sky, a dragonfly flew by me. And for those of you who don't know the dragonfly, to my family, represents either my memere or pepere. It felt so good to see it. It was like my memere telling me, "I'm so proud of you." I love her. Still sending me guidance even though she's gone.
