The theme of today’s assignment is to interpret connect. Any other day, this would be a positive and light-hearted photo project, but today is not like any other day. Even the weather today was dark and dreary. I don’t usually take black and white photos, but I wanted the photo to communicate a darker mood, and I thought a B&W photo would be fitting.

As a part of the Photo101 class I am taking at the Blogging U, I will be posting photos daily for the next two weeks. When I take photos I don’t think about composition, angle, etc., so this will be interesting. Never seriously considered a DSLR, just because I don’t think I will carry around a heavy machine with me too often. I used a point-and-shoot … Continue reading My Street
It was a late afternoon in our summer home in Southern Turkey. My Dad used to love his garden, but the lemon tree was his baby. He took care of it with so much love. The tree was so bountiful that every summer even after we gave bags and bags of lemon to our neighbors, we still had enough for my Mom to make her … Continue reading Where else would you want to be?
