OMGosh! A comment from you is a dream come true. You have the most amazing gallery and site I have ever seen. I am 72 years old and partially blind, and when I see work like yours, I get very emotional. I started taking photos of my 7 grandchildren about 15 years ago, they were very successful athletes. I did not think that it could get any better than that, but all of a sudden I wanted to take lovely photos. I have a long way to go, but I get up every morning and try to decide what photo do I want to take today. You are such an inspiration, that I need to thank you very much. Merna Nobile

Thank you so much, Christine: you have a way of lifting my spirits and making me smile. I have wanted to tell you that if you come to California, I would really like you to come by and visit with me and my family. Please keep that in mind. Merna

Merna, this is taken from such a great angle and the composition (cropped or not) is just great. Wonderful image!
