World Photography Day

My blogging has been less than stellar lately, but I realized that I had to post something today as it is World Photography Day. I chose a recent image of my big guy. I went running on a trail by this tall grass and knew that I had to return with my family and a camera. He’s almost 7 years old and has been testing me in every way lately, but I love him so much.
