The theme for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is Anything to do with jets and planes. I had a dig around in my archives for this one!
A few more images from Frank Gonzales’ birthdays in Mexico — basketball games inside prison, along with cake and gifts.
One of my favorite spots along the Dave Moore Nature Trail. These images are from November 2019 and July 2020.
