Farewell

“Do all the good you can, in all the ways that you can, to all the souls you can, in every place you can, at all the times that you can, with all the zeal that you can, as long as you ever can.” – John Wesley I’ve just received news that someone I greatly […]

A different point of view

Inspiration from other blogs continues….on her blog, Katie’s Camera Blog (check it out here), Katie Johnson posted a photo upside down.

The National Geographic entry was not about me classifying myself along side some of the world’s greatest photographers; instead, I have other people’s submissions and have […]
