Out and About – Summer 2020

Okay, so I’m way behind in documenting the events of last year – a year significant for being a pandemic year, among other things. Here today at least are the images that comprise the latest installment of The Wild Reed’s “Out and About” series.

Over the course of the following days and weeks (hopefully not months!) I’ll add commentary and descriptions. Until then, enjoy these images of my experience of the summer of 2020 in Minnesota, USA.
