  3. Hello Cee! I don’t know if you know the blogger Basil René… But he just started a weekly photo prompt, and I’d like to help him getting it known. So here’s the link to the first edition, in case you’d like to add it to your photo challenge list, or even better, if you’d like to play along 🙂 I have no doubt you’ll have an awesome picture to share!!
