March 2013 Photo-a-day Challenge

I am still having fun with the photo of the day challenge with Chantelle of  Fat Mum Slim as well as with my FaceBook group!

I like to follow along – it makes you think about the photos you take.  I think it also helps improve your photography.  I am also getting to know my iPhone better and some of the cool ‘apps’ available.  I continue to learn so much about my phone and photography.  So, without further delay, here are my photos for the month of March…
