Memory Monday, Week 115

I’ve posted plenty of images from our various trips to the coast (sometimes more than once), but here’s one trip I seem to have overlooked. It dates back to 1993, in the period not long after we had lost our first pitbull, Phoebe. I suspect one reason for this particular trip was to try to console ourselves, not to mention […]

Family bonds

Market day

Even though they may not be the best images I’ve ever shot, I […]
