This week’s Photo Challenge is “close,” which can be interpreted many ways, I suppose. Here’s one, but don’t make me swear to what this critter really is. The specks aren’t “noise” in the photo, by the way. Dirty window. The author hangs her head in shame. It’s bad housekeeping, pure and simple, but what’s more important–writing, reading, taking photos, family, cooking (see how far down on the list cooking is?), hanging out with Oliver the cat–or dust on the glass?
