For someone who insists she is not an early bird, I have a remarkable number of photographs taken very early in the morning! I haven’t inflicted them all on you, but there are quite a few, from various travels. They are in no particular order other than alphabetical by place name.

Three by Three

The current theme for Weekly Photo Challenge is Threes, i.e., telling a story in three photos. I couldn’t decide which set of threes to go for, so have opted for three threes. Too much of a good thing?
