Cruising with a camera has been my favorite pastime for years. In a lot of ways, I owe my career to it. It eases the mind, distracts me enough from whatever is weighing me down to gain perspective.

Stay safe out there, be kind, and, if you’re able, try to help those around you. Remember: We’re all in this together.
