You Capture: Friends

Friends. We’ve been with friends in the past week. I just didn’t take any pictures. I really didn’t take too many pictures at all lately. I don’t know why. Whatever.

Peanuts, that is. Yeah, those tasty things that are so fun to crack open at baseball games, dropping the shells on the ground and eating the crunchy, salty goodness inside.

This week’s challenge from Beth at I Should Be Folding Laundry was “photographer’s choice.” My choice is to share some shots […]
