First, thank you to Norm of Thursday Doors fame for the featured photo and one more in today’s gallery. Amore showing … Continue reading Lens-Artists PC: Happiness is a choice
The more pictures I take, the more it becomes obvious that all I do is follow the light. The best is to catch it before it says good night when they say it’s golden, so I do. This magical gallery starts in Ljubljana, Slovenia, where … Continue reading Lens-Artists: Follow the light
“Life’s too short for boring doors” could be the official slogan of our jolly little group. Let’s have more of the other kind. Small wonder that it was Norm, our chief, who wrote this in a comment to one of my Thursday Doors post on … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 27/9/18: Norm’s Doors 3
