Every month, with our camera in hand, we go out and find what we hope will be the “winning photo.”
Those of us that don’t get recognized, just continue to search for that special image, until one day the Congratulations come pouring in from some of the best artist and friends anyone could image.
So to the Better Photo winners for the month of September, I congratulate you on a job so well done.
My very best to all of you, Merna Nobile

Brian, gorgeous, these eyes remind me of when I was a child in the depression and we played in the back lanes, there was a covet of hens and roosters, and one rooster disliked me and would jump on my chest and stare at me with that beak inches away from my eyes. I was lucky, but to this day, I hate rooster #10527997
