This week’s challenge at the Digital Photography School is abstract. I hope these water drops are a bit abstract and fits into the theme. These miniature oranges grow in my backyard. I always drool over them but I decided to do something about it today. When Chhavi started taking her afternoon nap I … Read more
This week at DPS the weekly photography challenge was Before and After. Looking at their picture I was once again thinking this was beyond me.
