Gerda Grice level-classic May 26, 2019

Congratulations again, Mary-Ella, on this excellent reflections shot. I actually know that area slightly. My brother and his family and some of my husband's relatives all live in the San Diego area, and when Dermot and I visited San Digo back in '96, we stayed in Little Italy. #114971

Mary-Ella Bowles level-deluxe May 26, 2019

Thanks for your support Cathy, Damian, Gary and Gerda. :-)

(Did you take some pictures when you were in Little Italy in '96, Gerda?) San Diego has many scenic spots - I'm fortunate to find myself living here now. #115678

Gerda Grice level-classic May 26, 2019

Hi, Mary-Ella,

I did take some shots of SAn Diego and I probably even took a few of little Italy, but I was using a little point and shoot film camera then, and the only shots that I took in San Diego that, as far as I can remember, turned out halway decently were a couple of old San Diego, a couple of Horton Plaza and one or two taken at Balboa Park. Thanks for asking. We really liked San Diego. #115744

Kathleen Clemons May 26, 2019

Hi Mary Ella-
Just wanted to congratulate you for receiving an Honorable Mention in Popular Photography's "Your Best Shot"! Way to go!!!! :) #115747
