DSC00457My own memories as a child are filled with summer days that were carefree, spent at my grandparents. I could play for hours in their backyard with my sister. In my imagination their backyard overflowed with fruit like loquats and plums. They had an old bathtub that grew strawberries at just the right height for finding and eating. There were sprinklers and then later, a hot tub for playing in as well. DSC00479These pictures are my way of recording those moments, even for myself, because admittedly it takes a couple weeks for my brain to fully process that I don’t have work.
