“Back to the 50s 2017” at Dyxum


Its about time to post here my entries for Dyxum Week 50 2017 challenge :-) Perhaps I should close this blog? I don’t shoot much anymore and don’t have time to publish my work. My other hobbies took over most of my free time… Anyway, here it is…

Day 1

Just few quick shots during walk with my dog. I had problem deciding which one should go as main entry. Finally my mood decided. Day 2 will be tough. I’ve already exploited all colorful things still available in park.
