I listened to each entry and sought out great photo opportunities that would allow me to capture the site without getting ...
Everything was going well as we went through our morning routine on Sunday, getting ready to go to breakfast. Then it happened... as I was cleaning my glasses, the frame snapped in two at the bridge (the piece that goes over the nose to join the two lenses)! And, you guessed it...
