weekly photo challenge: symbol


The weekly photo challenge from The Daily Post: SYMBOL

My choice for this challenge is handshake. A symbol of hello or goodbye, congratulations, friendship, an agreement.

weekly photo challenge: companionable


Meet Sherlock (aka Doggy). My daughter was first introduced to this little fella 16 years ago when she was just two years old. We were in a gift shop and there was one wall that was floor to ceiling stuffed toys. She reached for Sherlock and never let go. He became better known as “Doggy” and wherever Cristina went, you’d be sure Doggy was her companion- she took him everywhere when she was little. Cristina is grown now so he’s a treasure that sits on her bed, tattered and worn and stitched in many places- scars of a loved companion to a little kid.
