Irene Colling level-deluxe December 01, 2008

Thank you to everyone for your kind comments.
This is a very candid photo of my brother-in-law.
He was sitting in the doorway of a dark building looking out into the sunshine.
He was busy watching the activity there and did not realize I took a picture.
I edited the background in front of him, but the background behind is natural. #6834199
