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!
