Let's call this the first five thousand hours

I just deleted a huge wall of text about how I'd just returned the lens I'd rented for my senior project. I talked about how it felt like I've hit a milestone in my photography and how amazing rental gear can be, since it forces me to go out and shoot even though I'm exhausted. It was sort of neat, but a week later all I can see is a few different directions that this project should go in. I'm mostly there, but not completely. At least the process is beautiful.
