I took a new position with a Naval base.  Been working ten hour shifts and some classes, plus Guard reserves part time, so I really don't even have time for me.  I do however, still have time for photography! :D …

Picture a Day

I am currently doing a picture a day challenge, where you take a picture everyday for the entire year.  I have been posting my pictures in a group on FB.  Some of them I have shared on flickr, but don't have them titled as PAD.

Took this while I was at the nature science park today,  I was very please with how it came out and wanted to share.

Hope you enjoy it.…
