I especially like the one in the center. What a moment that must have been for the person.

That’s one of the great things about photography, having memories to return to later. Thanks for sharing yours, they are delightful photos as well as a new insight to your life.

I’m being a very bad blogger/reader lately. I’m working on projects, but mostly I’m just trying to enjoy the summer which draws me outside like a moth to a light.
