We stayed close to home this weekend so we could watch the Rabbitohs make history, so we don’t have any new travel photos this week.

But sometimes photography doesn’t need to do anything other than bring a smile to someone’s face. If we’ve done that then we’ve succeeded. And if we haven’t succeeded, at least we had fun.
