Home is where the heart is. Unless you’re stuck there too long.

“Shelter in place,” drags on for another week and my motivation to do anything continues to shrivel up and die. That sounds overly dramatic, but the sentiment is true. I’m sure I’m not the only one.

Homeschooling my children is taking up an inordinate amount of my time. Certainly not a position I thought I’d ever find myself in. And of course, I’m able to work from home so I’m trying to fit that in amidst the constant distraction of kiddos.

Still, I’ve managed a few shots here and there. Largely thanks to the very small and unobtrusive Fuji X100V. I can’t say how happy I am that I purchased this just prior to the world erupting. It’s the perfect camera for a documentarian focused on making photos of life as it unfolds.

I know that years, perhaps decades from now, I will want to look back and remember what life was like for my family during this period of time and so I’m trying to record it faithfully. Everything from nature walks to hiding in my car so I can get a few moments of peace. Life looks different now to be sure, but different can still be beautiful.
