August Break 2013

by justine

I could not be more excited for this year’s August Break, originally created by Susannah Conway. I’ve participated in my own way for two years now. 2011’s post is here and 2012’s is here.

I haven’t put a ton of thought into what this “break” means but I’ve felt very excited for it, the way one is giddy before vacation and can’t wait for the socially-acceptable reason to stay the heck off the grid. Luckily, the start of this break overlaps my trip back East.

Perfect timing.

I’m planning to post at least a photo every day, in the true sense of August Break – but include stories as I’d like. July was the first full month I followed an editorial calendar for this little space, and I really enjoyed it. I don’t want to lose that momentum, and I’m continuously thinking about what stories I want to capture and how I want to capture them.
