Summer’s End

I am back.

Such a bittersweet feeling. I’m sad to leave The Oklahoman after eight awesome weeks, but it’s good to be back writing for my own blog.

I picked out my favorite images from this summer to feature in my first post back.  These are the photos that I feel most represent Summer 2012 in Oklahoma.

My portfolio has gone through some changes after a busy summer, including a photo essay and video about hog hunting in Southeastern Oklahoma.  If you want to read about my experience in the wilderness for two days, you can do so here.
