Went to Paris for the Seine

It’s been an eventful year, and the other day, I was lamenting the fact that I haven’t taken that many photos this year compared to other years.  But, then one of my Paris pictures popped up on my screensaver, and I remembered I WAS…

Old Quebec

When I was a little kid, we had to drive long distances to visit relatives.  I used to wish there was a fast forward button so we could just get there.  On this rainy, dreary April Sunday afternoon, I would use that fast forward…

Battleford, SK
