“Soon to come in licorice, orange, cinnamon, and banana, but not strawberry, because I hate strawberries.”
― Terry Pratchett

The quote today was the first one that I came across in my keyword search for Strawberry quotes and it seemed quite fitting since I watched the book inspired film only last night, which it came from. Whilst minimal effort went into today’s shots, I did get a moment to edit some from a few days ago as well – sunsets that I just hadn’t got off the camera yet.
