Irene Colling 12/1/2008 7:56:24 AM

Thank you to everyone for your kind comments.
This is a very candid photo of my brother-in-law.
He was sitting in the doorway of a dark building looking out into the sunshine.
He was busy watching the activity there and did not realize I took a picture.
I edited the background in front of him, but the background behind is natural. #6834199
