~ Walking On Sunshine ~

Uploaded: April 30, 2004


Resubmitting, after some tweaking. New title, took off the green frame, and used dreamy photo filter and added canvas texture for painting effect. I was trying to take pictures of teh daffy's and the drive, but m son kept "getting in the way," Lucky for me this turned out to be one of my personal favorites! F4.5, 200 ISO, shutter @ 1/300 of sec.
