Two weeks ago I started a series on Singapore (sorry, I had to pause for a second to talk about an epic Bluegrass concert... in a CAVE), and this week we pick that back up. Singapore is a very vibrant country, with flowers and color EVERYWHERE. It's a beautiful place....

Bluegrass… In a CAVE!

Bluegrass… In a CAVE!

Fall Reflections

I have to admit upfront that I'm still on the fence about this week's picture. *whew* There, I said it. If you've been following along with this blog for long, you know that it started as a way for me to experiment with, and display my photography. Sometimes that...
