Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and Far
Day 242 – March 20, 2012
WordPress, the wonderful organization that hosts this blog, announced the theme for their Weekly Photo Challenge and it is “near and far“.
I have been waiting for a theme just like this one so that I can highlight this photo that I have been holding on to.
I would love to take credit for this photo, but, alas, I cannot.
This snapshot was taken by my wonderful mother-in-law to let our family know what we were missing back in the United States. As we moved to Peru from the hinterlands of Virginia, one of our annual springtime activities was to travel down to the Tidal Basin and view the cherry blossoms. This year, the first year we have missed in a dozen years, was the 100th anniversary of this event.
We missed it this year, but my mother-in-law did send this picture to let us know what springtime in the nation’s capital looked like.
Once again, a big tip-o-the-hat of gratitude to my wonderful mother-in-law for this picture.
