Jump For Joy
There is cause for celebration today as two special people in my life are celebrating their Birthdays!!

First, Happy Birthday to Arceli, my beautiful wife, best friend and life partner!!

Second (but no less special), Happy Birthday to my very good friend and BP peer Laurence Saliba!!

Please join me in greeting them on this wonderful day of celebration.

Lastly, I'd be remiss if I didn't include a word of Congratulations to BP for celebrating 10 years of providing such a fabulous site for all us photography fans to meet, learn and share our work!

catagory: Monthly Theme (celebration)

p.s. spending the day with Celi and won't be available for commenting.

Also glad you re-arranged your gallery, as so many of us are behind (I doubt if I'm the only one!)and as we add new photos, older ones get further back. Great work, Donald - well deserved!
