Giving thanks and expressing gratitude through photography
It’s Thanksgiving week, and so I want to start by thanking a few people who have helped shape my life throughout the years, inspiring me, being there for me, and keeping me on the right track.
First, I want to thank my family and my friends. I’m lucky to have the family that I have, and the extended family of friends, too. You are my support group. This year, I’m also glad to have reunited with a handful of friends after many, many years.
I also want to thank my mentors and role models, people I look up to. Thank you for believing in me, and for being there for me.
Those I’ve met more recently, and who have inspired me and my work.
My students, a few in particular (you know who you are). You help me become a better version of myself.
I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!

the sun, moon, and the eclipse (through special filters, of course)
– comforting and being comforted by our furry friends:
– spending time with friends:
I could go on, but it’s Thanksgiving week after all. So, enjoy, count your blessings, and have a wonderful and
Great post, Alina! Marcus
