Best of Summer 2013 | Photography by Jim Crotty, a set on Flickr.
From both personal and photographic standpoints, this past summer – the summer of 2013 – was full of incredible blessings. It began with my move from Texas back home to Ohio where I began the process of reconnecting with the place where I’ve previously experienced the greatest amount of personal and professional fulfillment and of which I have the strongest emotional and family connections. I will always, always be thankful to have found Raptor Ridge – my eight acre farm in Beavercreek Township – where I have the blessings of beautiful nature all around me, everyday. It’s amazing. But there were even more incredible blessings that arrived this summer as well, ones that I did not see coming. To celebrate life in the grace of gratitude. To be able to capture images along the way is just icing on the cake. I am so thankful. Peace.
