Google's "blogger" service and interface are terrible, remnants of 2007. Even a simple QC/D post like these monthly ones take way too much time. Each time I compose one, I feel like I just got done exerting too much effort over the last one. Then I look at these photographs and it's easy to remember just how much can happen in a month, it resets my perception of time. Bockfest feels like it was a year ago rather than a month and over the course of March, I didn't realize I was taking so many pictures of food.
That being said, here are my favorite photographs made in March 2017 that didn't necessarily have a place in a larger article or story.

The photographs directly above and below this text are from March 3, 2017 while I was walking to lunch. At the time, I didn't realize what exactly had happened, but travel by this area regularly, often parking here when I don't take the bus. According to Fox 19: the woman who was standing at the payment booth was killed when two cars collided and ended up in the lot.
|- I didn't take this photo, I'm just in it. My friend Linsey took this. She does awesome work. Bockfest was wonderful and I'm grateful to her for documenting it since I was too busy with a megaphone and smoke grenades to do so myself.|
