this or that thursday

Today I'm sharing a little bit of orange picking that we did over the holidays.








I have been somewhat neglectful of my dslr since the new year. I've been relying on my iphone way too much for my pics of the day. I'll be on the lookout this weekend for something interesting to shoot. :)

Okay, now let's see what you're sharing today... just link up below!

  16. How fun! I'll bet freshly picked oranges are great. PS I've never seen them on the tree in real life so I would've been too giggly to get any good pictures (I'm silly that way).
