Murry this is awesome. Love the lines and the off center fisherman! GREAT JOB on this. #194602

Marcie A. Fowler 12/7/2004 8:03:43 AM

I really wish you Texas people would quit rubbing in the fact that you still have warm weather (LOL)!! Send some this way please. Last Saturday I had winter coat, hat, mittens, flannel lined jeans, etc on!! Fantastic image Murry. I too really like the lines, curves and the placement of the fisherman. I don't know if he caught anything but you caught a great image!! #958587

Beautiful imagry and subtle coloring, Murry, the only fishing done up here these days is 'ice' and some days its even too cold for that. Very well done, my dear friend - your good friend, Allan #958832

Thanks Stacey, Marcie, Tom, Kath, Amy, Cathy, Pat, Sanjay, Sharon, Carolyn, Piotr, Allan and Dan! This is our season to shine here in the Houston area(when it's not raining). Today is sunny, 70F, low humidity (for us). Had Tex-Mex lunch on the patio (smothered with green chily -- my doctor said if it ain't green don't eat it!!) :0) #958965

Murry Grigsby 12/7/2004 4:37:04 PM

Thanks Ann and Bonnie! The scale of the young fisherman to the concrete structure is what caught me eye immediately. It was crawling with kids and most were waving at me to take their picture so I was lucky to isolate this one shot :0) #959428
