OMG, this is my first gold badge in almost 8yrs. and my first ever First Place badge in 12 1/2yrs. What is so weird, Jim not 5 minutes ago, 11:15 pm tonight, central time was saying something to me about "when you get your first place badge be sure to put it at the front of your gallery"...I said "no way will I ever get a first place badge"! I am soooo happy to be WRONG! :-) Thank you judges for this honor! I've known so many outstanding photographers throught the years, on this site, that the honor of first place is precious to me! Thank you one and all! :-) #10590524
