To me photography is not always about beautiful scenic landscape images.  It’s about simple every day things. What attracted me to the leaf of this Lambs Ear plant was the shape of it.  It looks like it was sticking it’s tongue out at me :)

We met this little mouse in an abandoned building. Three photographers trying to capture a photo of a tiny mouse that was running around the room was a wonderfully joyful moment.
