  1. Of all the photos, I liked the street side card game the best. What an interesting photo – one that shows an activity not normally seen in my neck of the woods. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks Deborah! It was lucky timing and a lucky shot really, and one of my favorites too. 🙂 Hope you’re well and enjoying the summer up in your neck of the woods! 🙂
