I got an to start a . I'm also practicing adding in front of important words.

Start:
I took a picture of the green just before Christmas last year on a rare trip to my home town. There was nothing significant about the trip, just as there's nothing especially significant about the green biker. It just happened to be on the shelf, never , and I happened to take a of it, along with many other photos of my bedroom.
