Thanks so much, Nikki! I was just about dead on my feet when I found this shot, after the long day of cherry blossom shooting with Don Johnson.

Thanks, Don... yes, I would say our day shooting together is now officially the most successful shooting day of my life! Thanks for joining me that day; we need to do it again sometime, perhaps the zoo as you suggested, where I need lots of animal help!

Thanks, Amanda! It was a pleasant surprise to find such a cool scene waiting overhead in an art museum, where you generally are focused on the walls in front of you!
