Wow! From her photographs Donald I thought she was older than 6! Maybe around my twins age (9). Mind you, it's like my Becky isn't it? She looks alot older than 14!
They grow up so fast!

Browsing your gallery Donald, I find it virtually impossible to pick a "favorite." And Yet -- ! This just could be it! (Why do I do this to myself???) Just thought I'd comment on this OUTSTANDING shot while I was here! #2844553

Another awesome composition. I love it! #3456378

Cheryl E. Molennor 2/12/2007 4:20:02 AM

This is a wonderful image of childhood exhuberance. The color, lighting, and comp are perfect. The footprints in the sand really add to the image, I think. Beautiful. #3939082

Today is the day that my little girl, Donna, turns 6 years old. It's hard to believe that she has turned into such a beautiful young lady so quickly.

I let her choose her own Birthday tribute image and she picked this one "because it makes her happy and kids should be happy on their birthdays". I will be spending the entire day with her and the rest of the family and won't have time to make comments.
