I’ll admit, though I’m a sucker for all thing benches (which there are lots of in this April 17 batch), this was an uninspired photo edit. Not to say the sunrise didn’t feel great, but revisiting some photos and they certainly come across without as much excitement. Ultimately, do I choose the lighthouse which I have a million photos of, or Picnic Rocks, which I have a million photos of?

Let’s go with the bench, it’s a darn good bench that has a place in my life both in and outside of this project.

I always like this spot on a clear day, looking across you can see the tiniest gap in trees where you’ll see cars, which is M-28 as you round the corner and head down the hill outside of Deerton.

Please see Mar 4, 2020. Lots of photos of this little island. Is this one any better or worse than March 4? I’ll have to compile a list of one from each season.
