I took this photo a year ago, just a few days before I found BP. It was the first photo I submitted to BP. I had just gotten PS maybe a week earlier and was trying to learn some things. I wanted to learn how to make a photo part b&W and part color so I used this to make the background B&W. I never liked that version nearly as well as the original. I like the way I shot it with the monochomatic tones. So I wanted to resubmit it this way. #91682

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment, it means a lot to me! This is one of my favorites as well. At first it just made me laugh and I put it aside, but then it kept growing on me. Donna, he wasn't bored he was MAD. lol He was afraid of the big lights, so I told him to look at his belly, so I could hide the face. Murry, I hated to submit a photo again for the second time, so I appreciate your comment. #350112

You guys have made me day! Sally, You think like I stories. lol I always thought of it as an older gentleman (maybe sales man) waiting for a train and was just tired out. But just laid off works well too. #350500

Great photo! #350896

Peggy Wolff 1/28/2004 6:03:09 AM

Thank you Jessica and Jennifer. :o) Its funny, I tried to have a garage sale last fall and did not sell one thing. But I had my 16x20 of this shot out with my business cards. About 37 of the 40 people who came up wanted to know the price of this photo. I kept telling them they had to bring there own darling child or grandchild in for a photo but they were not interested in that. lol #351237

Jessica Hughes 1/28/2004 6:09:45 AM

I can see how they would want this photo! It's perfect! You would think that anyone would want a photo of their child just like this! #351248

Jean Papo 2/12/2004 2:03:18 PM

I LOVE this shot, Margaret. It is quite the winning image!! (May I ask you what is a panel reflector, how big are they, etc...) Good luck with this photo - it deserves to go far!! #373674

Peggy Wolff 2/12/2004 5:40:02 PM

Hi Jean, thank you so much! I absolutly LOVE my panel reflector. It is about 5 feet tall and maybe 2 1/2 feet wide and stands on its own. I hate fighting with trying to get reflectors to stay where I put them, so this is perfect. I got it at a trade show and I think I paid a little over $100.00 for it. #373833

Murry Grigsby 2/15/2004 1:01:16 PM

Hate to be an echo but I LOVE this shot also!! Congrats and good luck Peggy! #377993
