What can I find on our morning walk?

Early Sunday morning, we decided to go for a stroll around the neighborhood. I thought to myself that this would be a great chance to find some photo opportunities.

My Photographic Misadventure at the Peach Festival

Last night my husband told me that there was going to be a Peach Festival in a neighboring town, and he wanted to know if we all wanted to go. There was going to be a pancake breakfast, parade, booths, and more. I said sure, sounded fun! Not only did it sound fun, but IContinue reading “My Photographic Misadventure at the Peach Festival”
