Well, it's August again, August 7th to be exact. Today would have been my mom's 95th birthday. Coincidentally, my first pink and yellow dahlia opened up today, and it just happened to be the 500th photo I've taken using a new borrowed camera. Yes, I've worn out my third digital camera! I've shot more than 30,000 photos in the past 8 years. I'm borrowing a friend's camera until I can buy a new one for myself.
