In keeping with the New Year, the topic of this week’s challenge is Beginning.

New Year’s Day I went on my first photography “meetup.” I signed up for the group on the  Meetup web site late last year, but I hadn’t been able to find time to attend any of the events except a photography show.

We began our meander at a marshy park where there was free parking.
