Inside   43 comments

It’s been awhile since I’ve participated in a weekly photo challenge.  A difficult challenge for an outside photographer like me.  In fact I think the theme for me should be inside looking out!

If you’re interested in any of these images just click on them for purchase/download info.  These versions are too small and anyway are copyrighted and not available for free download without my permission, sorry.  Please contact me if you have any questions.  For many more takes on the theme, see Inside.  Let’s start with a few caves:

There are numerous sculpted caves in the granite of Baja California's desert.

Couldn’t resist a peak inside a flower.  I feel so much the voyeur!
