Craig, I could've sworn I'd already commented on this shot. I really love this. Looks like a Polaroid transfer. Very artsy. Good of you to see this on the ground! #5567

Thanks for the comment! This was just one of those moments when everything came together. I have had people say that it looks like I did some manipulation in Photoshop, but not a single keystroke has been added to this one.

Cheers! #8001
