Additional information: I’ve been anthotyping for around 3 weeks as my next step in alternative photography. I love it! I exposed this in my greenhouse – another place for my experiments.

This relates to hope in that I spend so much of my time watching my boys together. Between them, they hold all my hopes for their future. This is our first summer in this house and the future feels closer than it ever has.
