I’m heading out this week for a very exciting trip. Truth be told I’m a little nervous. I’ve done a lot of traveling but this is an adventure a little outside of my comfort zone.

Counting as I Travel: A Numbers Game

For years I have been pursuing a little photography game when I travel – counting as I travel. I started, years ago, with a photograph of the number “1” and I’m currently looking for #56.
