Weekly Photo Challenge: Beneath Your Feet

Over the past few years, we’ve stood on some pretty impressive spots.  And, when we remember to look down, we’ve seen some mighty remarkable floors, stairwells, porches, etc.  Here are a few surfaces that we’re proud to say have recently been beneath our humble feet.

      Thanks. I’m toying with the idea of giving them up, though, since they rarely follow my train of thought with dome of my series. I’ve noticed that you don’t participate in the challenges, and yours is one of my fave blogs. Guess it doesn’t matter as long as it’s fun. Or at least that’s what Bert keeps telling me!

        Rusha, you’re right that we don’t do challenges. It’s not that we don’t like them, it’s just that I really enjoy going through our photos and coming up with a theme to tie them together. And Bert’s right, it’s all about having fun. When blogging stops being fun, we’ll hang it up. ~James
