Something stirs inside of me. I roll over in bed, searching for my phone. I over-reach and the now too-familiar pain in my wrist causes me to wince. Still, it’s better than before.

Also I've seen some photos recently that make me want to go shooting again, so I'm hoping I can carve some time out … Continue reading I’m getting into timelapse videos
When I was a kid, one of my favourite TV shows was Voltron. I preferred the Car Force series to the Lion Force, but both were great.
