John is my BBrother, LB, friend, anchor, and coach. He will also be the best man at my wedding. I cannot express how grateful I am for our bond. I could not be more excited for his upcoming graduation! He has worked extremely hard to obtain his degree. May 10, 2014 at 9:30AM! Congratulations dude!
I am ending this project in a way that is similar to how it began… with myself. However, things are different this time around. 2012 has been such a wonderful year. I am thankful for the many experiences that I had throughout the year. I have grown so much as a photographer and as a person. I hope to continue the momentum into the New Year and grow in all facets of my life. I have shared a piece of me with the World on a daily basis, which was a challenge for me, and I am truly honored to have done so. It feels great to set out to do something and accomplish it. Three. Six. Five. Plus. One. has been a fantastic milestone in my journey to becoming a better photographer and person. I now see many things differently as a result of completing this project. I have found inspiration in several things, celebrated various occasions and lived through another year filled with love, great people and good times. I completed this project for myself. If any of you doubted me… thank you. If any of you supported me… I thank you as well and I am eternally grateful for your support. I hope that the New Year is wonderful for you and those you love- SM
Today was a day for reflection about so many wonderful things. It is an honor to be part of such a great thing, work with so many great Brothers, expand my knowledge and understanding, challenge myself, make a difference and transcend. Today was a milestone in the long road ahead and a moment to remember. I am truly grateful- SM
