...photos from yours truly...
--the first one circled is of the Astronomers' monument in Griffith Park, in the hills above Los Angeles:
(took and edited this on my phone)
The one underneath is one of my favorite photos from the year my wife and I lived in Nicaragua:
I was biking around the colonial university city of León, Nicaragua, running errands...a colorful building across the street caught my eye, and since I had my camera in my backpack, I stopped, got off my bike and took a couple of shots. But then, when I turned around to get back on my bike, I noticed that it was parked against THIS vibrant wall. Wow--COLOR! A humble wooden building, instead of the more typical stone-and-stucco structure--when I leaned the bike against the wall I hadn't even noticed it; I'd biked up and down this street many times without really seeing it. Stop and park. Notice.
AND--you can still vote for us for the 'Dream Trip Photo Contest!'
(please please please...yes, this is shameless...)
