Nobu Nagase August 29, 2005

Thank you very much, everyone, for taking the time to view and leaving very kind words.

Patricia, as you know, this photo was taken over 18 months ago. The creative arts contest at the fair specifies that a photo needs to be taken within 18 months time period.
I entered 2 new photos and 1 origami craft for 2005. I would know the result in the first part of September.
Thanks again. #1782148

Patricia Marroquin August 30, 2005

Oh, that's right! I forgot. I wondered whether you had done another shoot of this subject recently, though. Best of luck on your fair entries, Nobi! :-) #1785402

Jill Odice level-classic October 10, 2005
