Hello I am a student curently at the South Western Career Academy and I am
making a web-site to promote wellness programs with good eating habits and
exercise. I was wondering if I could have permission to use some of your
photos to help me promote wellness? #2301460

Ken Grooms January 18, 2006

Hi Jimi!

Yes, you can have them. My pc crashed recently, so I may have to rescan this photo. I have the "Harvest" fruit basket ready to go. Just send me an email. I'll attatch whatever size file you specify. Good luck with your site!
