I had some fun shooting patterns with the X-S10.



We all had a wonderful time remmbering Wes and loving on each other!

    So glad you were able to have this wonderful family time! Not something we can take for granted these days. Nor should we, ever.

    Bill, you are truly blessed. Such a beautiful family, and wonderful memories of Wes.
    I miss you brother, wish we could tag up, but in the meantime, you are in
    my prayers.
    God bless.
