A short visit along the coast in South Carolina provided an opportunity to observe some wildlife and beautiful gardens. However, the unseasonably hot and humid temperatures made mornings the only reasonable times to be out and about for any extended … Read More

First, a sincere thank-you to those who via the previous post left kind birthday wishes and encouraging words on my current inspirational slump and time away from photographing, as well as my lack of participating in any meaningful way in this my little corner of the “blogosphere.”
