I’m a little late to the party, with the move and the new job, this should have been done two weeks ago.
Anyway part of the New Years resolution is to blog more, so here it is.
I am going to split the images from last year into 3 posts, news, editorial, and B&W to keep some coherence.
These have mostly been taken in the last month and a half, since I started working for the Mansfield News Journal (again). There are a few other “news” ones from before then at the beginning.
