Sunday Picture Show (Keeping Afloat)

I’d typically be calling this my Photography Friday post, but since I’m two days late, we’re trying something new. This week’s Photo Challenge prompt is to share photos that exemplify what “afloat” means to us, and I’ve taken quite a few lately… My workouts at Iron Tribe can be a bit intense, but I love…

Photography Friday: Abstract Orange

I must not take a lot of photos incorporating the colorĀ orange in my day-to-day. In general I’m really not a fan of the shade, so wondering if orange things just don’t catch my eye that often (kind of the opposite of how I go gaga over purple objects). Today’s photo challenge asks us to share…

The Tiniest Walkabout

Sundays are normally my homework day, during which I scramble mightily to polish up my weekly assignment in hopes of getting an A+. It’s funny, school seems to be so much easier when you’re older and genuinely excited to do the work. I’m not sure that going to school online gives you the fullness of…
