I've just come in from the cold. It's winter here and I live near the Mississippi River - prime time and place to photograph Bald Eagles. This week, the challenge is to go out and...Photograph our Feathered Friends
I didn't put up my usual Monday post and I thought I'd put up an explanation. I was working in my webpage. I'm still in the process of renovating so please mind the dust! On the advise from a friend, I use Wix for my webpage. I know I have WordPress for this blog but… Continue reading Webpage Blues
