23. I'm so jealous of people that can look at something and then draw/paint it.
I'm unable to even draw a circle without a template so my artistic endeavors are limited to what I can see through the lens of my camera.

These are not final product, but rather quickie reminders of photos that I intend to finish when the weather gets cold and I'm trapped indoors.
