Good morning my BP friends..
After many thoughts I have decided I won't be renewing my BP membership in Feb.
It has been a great ride and had a lot of fun,but I need to take a break for a while.
I appreciate the fiendships I had made here and getting to know a lot of wonderful photographers..
You are the only reason I have stayed this long..
I will be posting until then,maybe interrepted by the 2 weeks I will be in Florida.
Thanks for your support and your wonderful words ans encouragment..
Have a great day. #1341750

The beauty of this poicture got lost in the saddness of knowing in a short period we will not be seeing you and your beautiful gallery. I do understand my friend, one has to do what they have to. I hope you have a wonderful time and trip to Florida. I sure am going to miss you my dear friend. You take care of yourself. #9148133

Terry Cervi level-classic January 11, 2011

It's very sad to hear that you're moving on for a while, Maria. I've known you since MyParkPhotos and have enjoyed viewing all of your wonderful work and participating with you in the contests! Good luck to you! This is a beautiful pic, BTW!! #9156521

Marty Straub January 11, 2011

Well, geez... that sure turns what I want to say in a whole diff'rent direction. Never mind about this gorgeous photo of fins with its beautiful colors of inviting composition. Are you keeping your Zenfolio site? We all need our Butterfly Lady fix once in awhile. I understand your position, Mia, and wish you the best. Hard to imagine what I'd say here if I DIDN'T have your phone number and expect to see you later this year.

But wait! We just got started learning me Spanish, que maravilloso maestro de muchas cosas. #9156758
