2018 Recap: The Weekly Photo Challenge

This month I will be posting recaps of various categories for 2018.  Today I am highlighting The Weekly Photo Challenges of 2018.   As many of you remember, in June WordPress announced their last Weekly Photo Challenge.  Many of us voiced our disapproval with this move but over time we realized change is a part of…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Surprise

“Surprise, here I am!” While hiking last year I stumbled upon this morel mushroom (along with 5 others in the same area).  Although it was morel season, I was not actively looking for them.  I was both surprised and excited to find my first morel mushroom. The time is upon us again and I am…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Security
