5 Days of Black and White Photo Challenge

A while ago, my friend Regis challenged me to take part of the Five Day Black and White Photo Challenge. The aim is to post a new b/w image for five consecutive days and invite someone each day to join the quest. I have posted the images on social media, but thought it would be nice to […]

Postcard from Hörnli, Switzerland

Golden Gate Bridge in the Fog
