Here’s a weird mix of doing some football photography for my oldest child’s team and taking part in some odd photography assignments that are part of the course I’m co-teaching at VCU. There was enough random photos going on that I started a separate instagram account for it. I also managed to get blocked by instagram for using hashtags in a way that seemed robotic.
