Dominick Domicale, BP member from Los Angeles placing a message on to the Tree of Hope in remembrance of the 185 people who died in the 22 February earthquake.

It was great to spend time with you Dominick. I wish it could have been longer and thanks very much for the hot chocolate!

    OM GOSH! This is a PRICELESS image in so MANY WAYS!

I am so thrilled and touched by this image all at once.

To See Our Very Own Dominick At This Mighty Tree Of Hope...Showing His Respect!!! WOW!!!

Dominick, you are a wonderful Ambassador for us ALL here at BP that have prayed and mourned and cried over what happen a year ago to our Ann and so many others there in Christchurch.

Remembering the dead and reminding the survivors of not only that but that some things will go on and endure and be strong!

Ann, this is so beautiful!

Love and Prayers for the continued healing of your land and people!

-Laura

Wonderful capture of the tree and Dominick, Ann.
Whoever had the idea to post messages on a massive Tree of Hope was brilliant. In times of great loss, such as yours, it acts as a powerful reminder that there IS a light at the end of the tunnel.

With all that's going on in my life right now, I've missed so many wonderful photos from my favorite photographers...like this one from you. What a wonderful capture, Ann. Very moving, with a message of Hope for your country as it works towards the very much-needed healing process after so much devastation and loss of life. Congratulations, my friend, on an outstanding and uplifting Finalist!
