Travel Theme: Foliage

My Canon didn’t even make it out of my bag, on my last trip. The smartphone took over my eye and brain, as we were constantly seeking a signal and trying to capture excitement/silliness as it happened on the relay. As a tonic (for me), here’s a post of foliage photos from past adventures, inspired by this post on Where’s My Backpack. Enjoy!
