It’s been a couple months since I’ve been able to take some dog photos. Finally, got a chance at today’s Barket Market. Read more
Nothing much to do today, so I went back and re-processed some photos and what better subject than my girl.
Caulking apparently flew from some repairs at the neighbors. Interesting how it hit the window glass in the pattern of the screen.

I ended up ordering some Cloops which are these elastic silicone cable keepers that use neodymium magnets to keep them closed.
