Dear God...
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Dear God...
Dear God...

November 17, 2009

Have you wondered what the children ask God?
If only our souls where like theirs, this world would have neither wars nor borders, only peace and love.
My best wishes for all, today and forever.

SECOND PLACE NOVEMBER, 2009


My daughter did her First Communion last May, and finally did the portrait a few days ago because her godmother has a very busy life.

THANKS FOR LOOKING!!!
AND HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!!!

So a huge congrats to your wonderful image.

I see you have some really nice shots entered into the December contest....

Thanks for the so wonderful comments, Brian, makes me so happy that someone would chose it for first place or Grand Prize, Since the moment we did it -my daughter and I- it is "The Grand Prize" in my heart.
And Tammy, it wasn't a resubmit maybe you thought that because it has been in so many places that looks that is been so long since the first time you saw it, but thank you, I thinking on resubmit it on the people category, but I'm no sure yet, maybe in a few months.
