the word project: reality

This is our second blog post, where members of the CMteam are given a single word and asked to interpret it through individual images.  We look forward to showing creativity and diversity through our own unique styles and perspectives.
We’re keeping it real this month.  The CMteam has dug deep with some personal and introspective images that include the bittersweet beauty, and the familiarity of their daily lives.  Our word was ‘reality’.
