52 Rolls Week 29:52

Finally scanned those negatives……But last week I just felt like a break and decided that it was OK to fall a week behind.  So lets head back to Montana and the Workshop: They did manage to get me up one early morning for a sunrise shoot at Van Lake.  I was, however, not enamored with…

Week 27:Roller Skating with Sarah
