Photo Friday, Week 6: A Taste of France

(Disclaimer: I know it's Saturday - as detailed on the Deadly Words Facebook page, I had serious connectivity issues last night!) This week's photos are going to be hard to whittle down. I would probably use up the vast majority of my WordPress data allowance if I uploaded the sheer number of things I've shot [...]

Photo Friday, Week 5: Arrival

I find that I tend to depend on the future and her potential fruits to tide me over, rather than focusing on the present. I plan hypothetical journeys, mentally jaunt through [...]
