Vlog Prompts of the Week

Here are the vlog prompts for July 27-31st. Since next week will be August, and there are many “VEDA” challenges out there, I will be taking a break from sharing the weekly prompts. And as always, if you do one of the prompts, be sure to tag be so I can watch!



One evening this week, I was sitting on the floor of my office going through all of my camera gear to get ready for an event the next day. As I was sitting there, Chena lay in the doorway watching me, so I snapped a couple pictures of her.

Urbanspoon is now Zomato

Some time ago I started using Urbanspoon for looking at restaurants, finding new places to eat and sharing reviews.
