Weekly Photo Challenge: Mine

It’s been quite some time since my last DP Photo Challenge entry. Today it’s the full version of a photograph which I posted sometime last year.


A cake with my name on it. Literally. The white frosting is in the shape of a fleur de lis, accompanied by the French national colors. The cake was designed by a local bakery. Why the French theme? Of all the ethnicities that run through my family, French is at the top, followed by English…

No, I did not eat it all… just a majority.

DP Photo Journal: Wildlife

When I went to France last October we hit all the tourist destinations in Paris – including the Mont Saint Michel. This “Mount Saint Michael” is quite the tourist hotspot and you may find a plethora of shops and vendors around the premises, as well as historical guides… for a price. Now how does this relate to wildlife? While there, a companion of mine happened upon a ladybug – and *SNAP!* we have the picture below – the French LadyBug of Mont Saint Michel.


An exquisite inhabitant of the Mont Saint Michel!
