To my photo friends:
On August 23, 2013 I will be 75 years old and I have decided to celebrate my birthday with all of you by going to the “Better Photo Gallery” and enjoy going through all the categories for the month of June and Congratulate you for the beautiful and elegant photographs that has made you a winner in a special group artists. I have had the honor and the privilege of doing this almost every month since 2003 and hope that I can continue for many more years.
My best to all of you, Merna Nobile
