It’s Friday again and this week my  fellow photographer friends and I were challenged to take a whimsy photo.  According to the dictionary, whimsy means playfully quaint or fanciful behavior or humor. I dug through my archives for photos for this theme since I seem to be consumed by all things Christmas right now. And finding these photos was so fun. Over the summer, the boys found a toad and we brought it into the house and had a mini photo shoot with him. This poor toad had no idea what he was in for in our house!

Now you can continue through our circle of photographers by visiting my wonderfully talented friend, Emily and see how she captured whimsy.
