June :: Photo-a-day

Another month has come and gone.  Photo-a-day is still a lot of fun.  I believe that it is making us all better photographers and the two groups that I belong to are very positive and supportive.

This is a rather long post with lots of pictures…grab a beverage; put your feet up and enjoy!

Here is the smaller group that I follow.  We all met through various other groups on Facebook!
