Hello everyone,

For some good reasons I have been missing a while from WordPress field, but today I am back with some fresh maths vibes.

“Walking” around the sites, I have discovered an interesting photo challenge:  July photo a day challenge by Maria at City Sonnet.

As I am a passionate picture capturing lover, I will take the leap, making an engaging game between maths and images.

Welcome July! You will be full of sunshine, colours and flowers’ smiles!

Have a beautiful July, wherever you are! 🙂
