    Monday Minstrel: How Long?

    Angkor Wat, temple complex at Angkor, near Siemreap,Cambodia, that was built in the 12th century by King Suryavarman II (reigned 1113–c. 1150).

    Doors and Doorways: Part 2

    I would like to add some doors and doorways from the other side of the world for Sylvia’s Lens Artists Challenge #204 Doors and Doorways.

    Candid Moments Captured

    This week Ann-Christine has chosen “Candid” for the Lens-Artists Challenge #67. Not many of the photos I take are of candid moments.
