Photography Widower – She said “Just one more photo”…

She said "just one more photo"... In an attempt to show support for my wife's passion in photography, I graciously agreed to a three day stint at Badminton Horse Trials.

With a wedding invite came an opportunity … Continue reading Bike, Car, Tree – 2 Minutes on Ile De Re
