Danger! – Weekly Photo Challenge

I took this a while ago on a hike near the Hollywood sign; nearly stepped on it as my eye was stuck to the viewfinder of my camera.  Luckily my daughter was paying attention and alerted me to the little critter.

Photography can be a dangerous pastime.

Phoenix and Scottsdale

Had a great weekend in Phoenix last week which will (for reasons I won’t go into) be a most memorable one.

Anyway, we stayed in an AirBnB apartment near the centre having driven all evening on Friday.  Yes, through all that rain; it was dry when we arrived however though that did not last as by next morning the rain had caught us up. Continue reading “Phoenix and Scottsdale”
