A Minimal but Cool Thing

It is with H-U-G-E appreciation that my newest blog friend, the friend that has me doing fun stuff in learning, seeing, and experimenting with a camera, that I share this link: JunsJazz Images and Inspiration Issue #7. I am humbled being associated with an outstanding group of photographers in all  JJ’s online digital magazines. And at the same time I am excited to be one of the featured photographers.

Unsure of what a Boxing Day night of celebration held in store (but I do now), we readied ourselves for good food, conversation, and fun at the very least. The evening was an absolute delight.
