BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   Omaha
Omaha
From last Sunday, when they had the ribbon cutting ceremony for the Omaha-Council Bluffs pedestrian bridge. The fireworks show was two weeks ago. Accompanied by Mike Frazier, another BPer!

I'm also headed to Colorado for a few days, hooking up with a few other BPers and chasing the aspen colors.

I was looking forward to this one, Ken -- and you did not disappoint! Fabulous clarity, as always.

Have fun in CO...maybe next time I'm there I can hook up with someone, what fun that would be!
