I have posted a very similar photo to this. I wanted to post it again with Mackenzie in a different pose and less art work on the wall. It is a composite of two images.

This is one of the first photos I remember from when I started on BP. I don't think I was making comments at that time. I is the photo that made me what a photo editing programe so I could do selective coloring. It really is a 1ST place photo. :o)
