Farewell, Mexico Monday! Even though I suspect there still must be a few more slides somewhere around the house (including one of an 8-year-old me standing on a street corner holding onto a giant bunch of balloons), they have yet to turn up, so this will be my final week sharing my dad’s slide images of trips to Mexico. First, […]
The San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park includes the Hyde Street Pier, where visitors can explore historic ships and enjoy some amazing views of the city and the bay.
The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for the week of November 11, 2016. In this week’s challenge, show us tiny. Capture something at a smaller scale. Create your own miniature scene.

Still, if you can manage to get up early enough on a clear morning and choose […]
The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for the week of November 4, 2016. This week, share your own take on chaos, whether it’s the mess in your living room, a busy street crossing, a party on the verge of getting a little out of hand, or any other subject that celebrates a lack of (visual) control. It’s always a little […]
