For this Sunday Snap, I traveled back to 2015... This photo was taken back in September of 2015 when I was just becoming interested in photography.  I shot this image with a Canon PowerShot SX400 IS which is a point and shoot camera.  I originally purchased this camera to document hiking trips.  That is what…

For the Love of Apples

A Trip to the Antique Shop

Key City (3 of 3)

On Christmas Eve we visited one of the local antique shops just to browse the items and enjoy some time out and about as a family.  To me, it is always interesting to browse through any kind of antique or vintage items. I carried my camera with me as we walked through the store.  I was hoping to discover some unique items or photo compositions.  I did manage to get a few shots that I thought may be worth sharing. Please visit the blog to see my photos. Thanks!

Weekly Photo Challenge – Ascend

The theme for this week's WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is Ascend.  My plan was to walk around town and photograph objects that ascended in some fashion.  Living in a small town my subjects are a bit limited bit I managed to find a few things that fit the theme.
