Not sure where Bananas come into it - but this is simply FANTASTIC!!!! #1070462

Tom Andersen 1/29/2005 4:03:19 AM

Thanks for your comments, Colleen, Paul and Diane!

Diane, as I looked closely at the center of each flower the petals reminded me of a banana. As the flower opens the petals split, hence the name "Banana Split".

Congratulations Tom on this full frame finalist. What a beauty. I give you a good portion of the credit on the finalist I have this time. Several months ago you commented on a photo of mine - said it reminded you of a sword. I turned it over, resubmitted it - named it excaliber and it is in the finals. I am not sure I would have done that had you not taken the time to tell me your thoughts. So congratulations and THANK YOU! #1116065
