Feature Photo Friday

Last week, I featured my pond. Today’s feature photo shows the hands that built it. On the 24th, we will celebrate our 8 year wedding anniversary. Even after that time, he still makes sparks fly. 😀 I used my camera for this one. The shutter speed was fast enough to catch the sparks without making…
