Blessed by Skiesgreen 2013
Blessworthy and Special
As a Squid ngel" I get to fly over lots of lenses and have lost count of how many have received some star dust from my dusty old bag of goodies. There are now several other of these lensographies with featured lenses of those who have been blessed by me and the links are posted below so you have access to them.
Meanwhile it is a new year and a new beginning for many who are just starting out on this site.
My favorite way of travelling is in the chipmunk, which is the type of aircraft in which my first flying lessons took place. It was used as a training plane for the Royal Australian Air-force and it is least likely to crash on you. Enjoy your visit here and if you are visiting a lens of your own then please don't forget to leave a comment. If you are just perusing then comments are always much appreciated.
This is a work in progress so there are empty modules waiting to be filled at the bottom of the page, It will be completed when the last blessed lens is added sometime in the future,
