Flooding Red River

It looks like we’re headed for another record-breaking flood here in the Red River Valley. Today’s announcement from the National Weather Service only confirmed what just about everybody in town already knew – we have a lot of snow [with more on the way since it is only January] and the ground is super saturated. I thought it would be appropriate to include a few photographs from the 2010 spring flood as part of My [Partial] Year in Pictures entry. As an aside, I will be buying a new pair of boots in preparation for photographing flood fighters.

Now, back to 2010.

Last year marked my first year as a full-time freelancer [i.e. self-employed]. I got an office, a logo, business cards, this online journal and website, a second camera body, lights and lots of other stuff. More importantly, I found a sense of purpose and commitment to my creative self. The photographs included here represent just a few of the people and places I had the pleasure of photographing in 2010.

I have a great feeling about the coming year and am looking forward to all that is to come [except maybe for the flood]. Best, Ann
