My favorite photos: June 2014

Every time I go out and take photos, I try to pick one favorite and post it on Facebook. I do this to push myself to take better photographs, and also to hold myself accountable—if I force myself to publish, I pay more attention to the photos I take. Of course, I still think I can do better.

These are my favorites from June (as well as one or two from May).
