Posted 3 CommentsPosted in Hikes and Stories, Random & Wild

What is it about black and white photos? There is a current 7 day photo challenge on Facebook and Instagram (and possibly somewhere else I don’t hang out) where the series of photos are all in black and white. I hate those things right up there with chain letters and pyramid schemes, so thankfully no […]

Belonging: The Importance of Tribe
