CEE’S FUN FOTO CHALLENGE: MAN-MADE ITEMS Graffiti and Murals Considering the amount of PRIME tagging surface in and around the city of London, I was amazed and impressed that the graffiti artists show so much respect for their city by adding creative value where they doodle rather than taking value away by defacing beautiful architecture. … Continue reading TAG…You’re It!

Yesterday I visited a too-long forgotten toy box brought to mind by a friend. Today I found something I'd thought lost when an earlier laptop decided to commit Hara-Kiri.
