Sometimes, a picture isn’t worth a million words…

Because the fall colors have been so glorious, I was carrying my camera with me to work and to church in case I should see something I had to shoot.  Last Sunday, I was driving home from church with my camera on the front seat beside me.  I suddenly had to step on the brake and the camera fell off the seat.  The next picture I tried to take, the lens wouldn’t focus.  🙁  I have seen all sorts of things since that I would have loved to photograph and share with you, but I can’t.  Therefore, I haven’t written.  Continue reading
