A few snaps

Atlanta about to make a wish

Atlanta about to make a wish

I have disappeared off the blogging radar in recent times. This has been largely due to a combination of being very busy and a lack of inspiration when windows of opportunity do arise.

I took the neglected Nikon out yesterday for my niece Savannah’s Communion celebrations and some of those photos are below.

I have also included a few snaps I took on a couple of the other rare occasions I have briefly taken the camera out lately.

Hopefully, this post will kickstart more regular photo taking and posting.
