Photo Monday – Are You Sick of Prospect Park Yet?

The girls have skating classes in Prospect Park on Saturday mornings.  It’s on the far side of the park for us so we don’t go there as much when we’re just walking around.  We’d had snow during the night but

Photo Monday – Playing With my New Lens

For the third year in a row, I asked for a lens as my birthday-Christmas-from everybody gift.  Last year, I really thought that I would be looking into flashes as this year’s gift.  I changed my mind in Scotland.  When
