Thank you Rita. William is a remarkable man and truly is one with Mr. Lincoln. You should hear him with the children and when her gives his Gettysburg Address.

Thanks a lot Joy. He is so very cooperative because he does Lincoln all the time and knows how to get into "the look"

Thanks Arthur. Enjoyed your gallery a lot. Noticed the shots from the Death Valley race track. Spent four days in the valley but never ventured to that area. Wish I had.

Dear Photo Friend: I feel that something has changed at Better Photo but cannot tell you just what has happened. I have been here since 2003 and most every month I have written to all the winners telling them how their work touches me. I have witnessed photographs that bring tears to my eyes and colors that are unbelievable, now I am worried that like all good things that it will not be here the next time I look.
But the feeling of not being able to congratulate all the winners for the hard work, and sharing their talent with all of us makes me so sad.
However it turns out and even if this is the last time I have this privilege, to let you know how exceptional your work has been, please know that I will never forget.
CONGRATULATIONS to all of you for the month of February, 2013, I send my very best to you always, Merna Nobile
