Lines and Patterns and Trees—Oh My!

Borrowing the title and twisting it a little from “The Wizard of Oz,” today’s WordPress photo challenge involves lines and patterns, and for me, trees. Oh my! This photo was taken in December at Pine Valley Farms near Westminster, Maryland. My family and I have been going there to cut down our Christmas tree for […]

The Golden Hour

The Golden Hour, this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge, was photographed in Duck, North Carolina in the Outer Banks, as the sun was beginning to set.

Lost In The Details —Weekly Photo Challenge

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unique

I decided to participate again this week in the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. The word we had to “show” through photography was “unique.” This week’s photo is one I took last May when my husband and I vacationed at The Breakers in Palm Beach, Florida. We took a guided bike tour along North Lake Trail, […]
