Vintage themed party
Hugh's photo challenge this week is about all things vintage. I was immediately reminded of my daughter's Vintage themed 30th birthday party a few years ago.

Weekly photo challenge: blurred vision
A throwaway shot, or purposefully unfocused? I took this photo last weekend at the Wedding Fair and had to retrieve it from my deleted album as I had dismissed it as too blurry. The only editing I have done is to make it a black and white shot and now there's something about it that grabs …
