February Photo-a-day challenge

I am well into my second year of a “Photo-a-Day”. I’m still having fun and it is making me a better photographer.  It is also helping to get my creativity flowing. So grab a coffee (or other beverage of choice) and enjoy a few minutes while you take a look. Comments are always welcome! 🙂

First, here is the group that follows the Fat Mum Slim list. If you are interested, you can join up here!
