Sun’s Out Lensballs Out!

Here are my first photos with my new 80mm Lensball. I had just ordered and received my new Lensball right before the quarantine. The first and second photos are with the ball in the same position/place and taken within minutes of each other. This third photo is of the sunset in a different location on…

Welcome to the Chicken Shack

We stared at this shack that sits on the property next door to us for a year and we were disgusted by it. We were offended that it was constantly in our view from our dining room window. At that time, it was an old and ugly thing no one cared for. We ended up…
