You are not allowed to take pictures inside Sacre Cœur In Paris during Mass. I have a personal rule as a photographer to respect the rules. However, I also reserve the right to play dumb. When I enter such a place I find a location to take the shot I want and quickly take as many as I can until I am stopped. I then claim, I didn’t know, apologies and politely put my camera away. I didn’t get off many shots but here it is, morning mass.
When our new neighbors put in a fence I wondered how it would change our backyard. It only improved it by giving us a little more privacy I thought. Then I realized the real advantage.

For the last two years we have had amazing blooms. This year they not only survived the deer but also a terrible storm that brought down trees but not our five feet tall lilie
Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays. Except for the fireworks. I use to love fireworks as a kid. However now I realize how upsetting they are to veterans and also to pets I have revised ny opinion. However time for a great barbecue with friends and usually great weather helps us appreciate our freedoms and hopefully we can hold on to these in troubling time.
