The results of a month-long personal project titled Just Look Up… With this year’s news becoming ever more confounding and disturbing, I found myself feeling increasingly discouraged and devoid of hope. I was hungry for a new outlook on my world so I challenged myself to take at least one photograph looking upwards, at some point each day during the month of May. This project does not attempt solve any of the world’s problems, but has succeeded in providing me with a way to look at my surroundings from a new point of view. I am finding beauty in all sorts of unexpected places during my daily travels around Atlanta. Enjoy.
