Scavenger Hunt Sunday

June 12, 2011
Last week, I provided a few pointers for pulling out of this summer slump I had – that’s right…I think I’m pulling out of it.

Let’s take a walk…

June 10, 2011
So it appears that the “slump” I’ve been in is emerging…or maybe it’s just that I have a Compact-flash card full of photos to process – either way I feel much better. Last Saturday, following the wedding…we had about an hour and a half to burn before the reception. We only knew one other guest (other than the couple getting married) – and he brought his daughter with him. Needless to say, she was bored within 10 minutes so I asked if she might enjoy taking a photo walk with me. She was quick to say YES and we were on our way.To be honest with...
