    I like the flare on the right side of your first image – that is cool!ReplyCancel


Since we just returned from a fabulous vacation in Paris, I decided to post an image of Louis in the French Riviera. Next visit Elaine Mueller Tweedy in Northern Pennsylvania to see more colourful images; and then keep going around the blog ring until you see everyone’s post.

Fantasy-52 week project-petswelovephotography

The topic for this week’s blog ring is “Fantasy.” My fantasy is Elijah, my beautiful goldendoodle, who I lost to cancer last year, looking down on me from heaven while I skied and kayaked on the same day at LakeTahoe. I miss him so much but I feel as though he is always with me…
