So where do I take my photographs? Anywhere I am. My camera travels with me all the time. Sometimes I take "camera walks". Sometimes I just happen on a cool "Kodak moment" at home or in the yard.

Hope you have had some great "photo ops", too!
*I was willingingly "kidnapped" - lol - for some birthday fun!
**Of course, Funtry Friday will be filled with more of these adventures!
