Do Not Disturb

Uploaded: November 11, 2011


Reworked and resubmitted. The original was taken through bars which created a dark shadow across the image. Changed the orientation to portrait.
I messed up the copy of all the comments from the original image. I apologize and thank everyone for their kind comments.
