While visiting the University of Virginia’s College at Wise (UVA-Wise), I was caught without my camera.  I did however have my new Galaxy 9 and without knowing anything about the phone or it’s camera settings, snapped this image of a sculpture of Thomas Jefferson.

As I walked through Sydney, I was overwhelmed by the beauty of these large, mature trees.  They were everywhere!

After 5 weeks of scheduled posts, I’m back from an incredible trip to New Zealand and Australia and will be posting more currently.  I’ve been sharing that journey in several posts on Life on the Bike.  So many photos / so many blog posts.  Pop on over if you have a minute, and know that I look forward to catching up on all of your blog posts, too.
