I want dibs on shooting Caroline eating her camera. Not that I think this photo won't win (I do think it will) but I seem to remember a certain beach volleyball photo a month or so back that we ALL thought would win and didn't win I guess it ain't over til it's over..I am glad we have a few more days to ponder who will actually will win or not though..makes the contest more fun! #194212
