Umpteen Shades of Taupe

Now, don’t get hung up on the boring collage. It is my first one, and I had a hard time putting it together. Baby steps – people! The photos are otherwise unedited/unadjusted and taken in daylight. The name of the post says it all. Yes, I know it’s a cliché, even saying that is a cliché,…
