So i had completely forgotten about this, but i was looking at an old photo i posted here a few years ago and you had commented talking about me talking about a picture i had taken that you wanted to use in a project...i can't for the life of me remember what the photo was that you used, but apparently your professor thought that what i said was really insightful. XD
