The Lens of All Our Experiences ~

“We see the world through the lens of all our experiences;

that is a fundamental part of the human condition.”

Abi and I have no misconceptions about our abilities as photographers; we are amateurs at best. We do not have fancy cameras nor have we ever won any prizes for our photos. Of course that could be because we’ve never entered any photography contests. We take photos of what we like; taking hundreds as we travel and hoping for the best. We take photos to capture memories and every now and then we’ll put our photographic eye to the test to see what we come up with – and ask ourselves, did we get the shot?

I thought I would share an eclectic sampling of several of our favorite – did we get the shot – photos as we traveled our 8,000-mile See the USA road trip.
