WPC – View From the Car Window

….this week’s WordPress photo challenge is windows

On the way up to the cottage this weekend I decided to take photos from the front seat of my car. Seeing that my husband was driving I decided to experiment with my iPhone as we were zipping along the highway up to Georgian Bay.

WPC – Ooh, Shiny!

…..what am I easily distracted by?

There are probably a lot of things that distract me, make me lose my focus but one of them is seeing art. I’m fascinated with abstract artists and I can get lost in their paintings. This happened to me last year when I had the opportunity to see numerous famous works of art at the Peggy Guggenheim Gallery in Venice.P1010122
