My entry for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week.
I grew up less than 8 miles from the shores of Lake Natoma — and yet I had no idea that Lake Natoma even existed until I was an adult! The Big Guy, on the other hand, grew up with the lake almost literally in his front yard and spent much of his time playing and fishing there. The longer I […]
I haven’t been posting much the past week; first I was out of town for Christmas, and when I arrived home I promptly came down with a head cold.
