There’s no intention to write a recap for each of these photo drops, but I will certainly try. Looking back at these photos, some that are more than two years old, I remember being out on that morning and what I say, but I wish there was a better recollection of where I was at mentally and emotionally. There are a few scattered journal entries, but for a project that nevrer inteded to extend into 2020, the daily journaling was the aspect I took an immediate break from to start 2020.

What I particularly enjoy looking back on is the mornings I made it to a brand new sunrise location. In this batch that includes my first sunrise from Point Abbaye, a beloved location of mine, in my home county of Baraga. It also includes a birthday road trip for my first sunrise from Grand Marais.

My love for reminiscing has always been strong. In this particular batch, it’s nice to see memories from the people who joined me at sunrise, to recall the damage from the gales of 2019, and to see on one morning I saved only two photos.
