I began my blog site, Photo LOAF, in August 2011 to write about a photographer’s approach to document life as a slice of time. My photo assignments are usually specific place in time events. I however use the blog to link my photos and my words to singular past or present day events that I encounter during a week while keeping an eye towards future events that can encourage the people of the D.C. Metro area.
