Stonehenge, taken by me; rowing a boat on Grasmere Lake, taken by Britt Horman; a collaged line drawing I did for my Drawing 101 class; doing elbow stand at my grandpa’s farm in Idaho, taken by Brad or my sister; peonies, taken by Angie Monson; headless – my favorite image from our engagement session, taken by Nick Adams; across the Thames from Parliament in London, taken by me using a self-timer and gorillapod.
