Thank you all so much for the congratulations. I deep appreciate it. For me, it was one of my finest series that I really enjoyed doing.
I know you all have fantastic work that is always a joy to see. I have learned so much from all of you, how you take your pictures, what to look for, and not to leave any stone unturned as to subject matter. It is amazing what you learn from just studing your works. Some day I hope to learn PS, how to layers, do different things, but for now will concentrate on trying to become a good photographer.
Thank you all again for the support, the joy your works bring me, your endearing friendships.
Have a most wonderful day, enjoy the holiday weekend, please be safe out there. #6819172
