Day 5 – Close-up

…thanks to Becky B for hosting Square Perspective Challenge

Becky and I have chosen similar themes today; different perspectives of flowers but mine is a little simpler….. from a few feet back to a close-up of one bloom.

Day 4 – Looking Down on the Cat

…thanks to Becky B for hosting the Square Perspective Challenge

For the month of July, Becky B is challenging all of us to take square photos that highlight ‘perspective’. Yesterday’s entry, that I’m posting today, is a cat taken taken from above. I was hoping he would look up at me but I had to be satisfied with his back.

Friendly Friday – Nostalgia

…thanks to Amanda for hosting this week’s Friendly Friday

Everyone once in awhile Facebook or my Photo Stream appear on my phone and remind me of events that took place in the past. It seems that I have done a most of my travelling in July which isn’t really unusual because the summer was the only time I could get away as a teacher.

Here are a few of my favourite moments from the past.
