Photographing the Ordinary in 2018

I take a lot of photos, both with my phone and with a DSLR. I decided to end this year by sharing 12 photos, one for each month in 2018. Each photo represents my favorite (for a variety of reasons–not always because it was the best) taken with my phone during that month. (I cheated a bit.Β I added a 13th photo as the above featured image. It was taken on March 30 during a conference trip to Indianapolis.)
