Thank you Mary, Karen, Salim, Robert, Usman, Donna M, Susie, Karol, Katarina, Melinda, Cindy, Vicki, Joy, Anthony, Cathy, Claudia, Rick, Lee, Linda, Casey, Debra, Sabrina, Ed, Donna P, Terri, Margie, Anne, Jeff, Colleen, Roger, Michael, and Guy! I really appreciate these congratulations from such an amazing group of talented and creative photographers!

I can't say ths was a lucky shot. Under Jim Miotke's direction with the neon signs as background, and a history of skill building from many hours spent panning birds, panning a taxi was actually easier than hailing a taxi in NYC.

Thanks again!
