All The Marbles

Donna Roberts 1/24/2005 12:21:14 AM

Fantastic capture Dan......So, thats where the "marbles that I lost" are LOL.

Marbles seem to be "the" subject this month - Dan, if you have time seek a photo by Angel Mitchell from a few evenings ago, to see what I mean.

Great one!

What a cool photograph! I remember playing marbles as a kid on the playground (long time ago). Wonderful detail and color and the DOF is great here with the other marbles. I feel as if I can grab that first one!
