Art, Creativity, Photography, Travel, Writing

The WordPress weekly photo challenge this week invited us to share photos that illustrate the changing of the seasons to us.

The changing of the seasons is marked both by nature and by man in his seasonal celebrations – spring and summer solstices for example, cross-burning, harvest festivals, etc.
