Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge always seems to provide the perfect opportunity for me to share some of my more recent captures and this week’s theme, More Than 5 Items, does just that.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge on Cee’s Photography at http://ceenphotography.com/2013/12/03/cees-fun-foto-challenge-more-than-5-items/ is More Than Five Items. This was another one of those challenges where I had so many pictures I had a hard time deciding which ones to use, so I’ll probably post some more tomorrow.
