Boldness has genius, power and magic in it."

Some Old Favourites

More birds, cats and dogs...

Many of the images in this gallery come from a project started years ago on Facebook.  The group is called Fifty-two times.  The idea is to have a theme for a year in which you create something every Sunday.  I started with my 2 little daschunds the first year.  The next year was birds, followed by dogs, cats and horses.
