I certainly agree with Melissa! I can see my son out there with his son in a few years doing the same. David loves to golf and my first little bear I bought for Joshua had a golf club attached to it...LOL! Wonderful! :)

Wow! Alisha, I don't know how you do it! Your work is so creative from weddings to Golf.
This one caught my eye the other day when you showed us. Wonderful interaction between Father and Child.
I am so pleased to see it here. I see a winner for sure!

Alisha, I came here to comment on this shot, but got caught by "Connection of the Heart".

This is a great use of silhouette. And the greens are fantastic! Don't see that too often. This really speaks of connection as well. Wonderful!!
