Dan, this is very nice indeed! I love that you filled the frame with just two letters...Just out of curiosity, what the whole sign said? #910101

S J 11/15/2004 12:31:13 AM

Your ability to see and capture things with a different perspective alway amaze me, Dan! Good abstracts are perhaps the most difficult of all images to produce and this is one of your best work!!! I really don't know what it is but I like to think that it's a sign board....lol. Very well done! Very impressive! #910105
