One of the things about photography is that you get the opportunity to learn so much about the subject you are photographing-- I meet people and experience things I never would have otherwise, and this is an example. Thank you so much for the kind comments!!

Haha... thanks, Gabe! Actually, I have since bought a Canon Digital Rebel. I just joined BP a month ago, though, and this was one of my "older" images.

Thanks to all for the comments!

Thanks so very much for stopping by to congratulate me, everyone! I greatly appreciate it.

Thanks Jill-- I still feel funny (in a good way) when people say that they like "my work"... I still feel like a beginner!
