These next two weeks I will be spending primarily in St. Mary’s City, trying to make a final push in the lab towards completing the analysis I need to do on the dissertation. This means long days in the lab, quick stops for dinner, and then back to the lab at night to look over […]

For me, this meant an opportunity to take pictures of people picking apples. The orchard was part of a larger farm that had pigs, […]
