TWOI: 4/9/18

Happy Monday, yet again!  Another week, another seven images.  As always, it was hard to rank these.  Also, I'm trying something somewhat new.  Notice a color theme?  I'll keep experimenting.  I'm working toward a more uniform feed on my Instagram account, so I'll continue to tweak and see what works! …
