This, That, and the Other

The training on Human Trafficking that I went to yesterday was wonderfully held at Meijer Gardens

During the lunch break and after the training ended, there was time to snap a few pictures.

I will say this for it:  it has an interesting shadow on the wall.

        1. I see what you mean now. Yes, there is a lot of nature around here and at Meijer Gardens. The wild oats, the frog and sycamore, and the clown with the circus dog were taken in the Children’s Garden there.


        2. P.S. The photos are candid, as they are taken with my cellphone. I used to take a lot with my digital camera, but the phone is so much more convenient. Quality sacrificed for convenience, but it is what it is for now.
