Thanks Roby, I spent about 3 hours with 5 women taking photos of flowers. I told them I was comfortable enough with my masculinty to spend the day with them...I still have some more to go through and hopefully will be able to post some more. Thanks for the visit and the nice comments. #1807082

Thanks Roger, Bill, and the Judges for stopping by to comment.

Bill, I'm sure you read my response in the forum thread...After Stuart took all those bike photos with the models or was it models with the bikes and then posted the flower pictures, I just had to laugh....So here's my flower....

Hmmmmm, trains and flowers? #2451854
