lunch with Susie.

For my Visual Storytelling class portfolio, two stories were to be created using photographs. I did one good one, one really horrible one. I choose to showcase my good one here. The photos vary in quality. Sometimes it was really low light, sometimes it was super bright and good light. Also, the captions are what were included with the photos in my portfolio. It helps to tell the story and move it along.
