Nice shot Cathy! #94958

Thanks for the comments. I loved this when I saw it and you wouldn't believe the number of frames I have of it. Backward, forward, sideways, upside-down. Call me a kook. It really (in person) brings out a strong emotion in me and others I was with. I hope my photographs of it will evoke a similiar feeling in others. Isn't that what it's all about, anyway? - Cathy #364659

You know I love this image! Had to come back and give it a cyberhug. I would love to see all the different frames of her. I am sure they are just amazing.

Would you believe I have sold 150 prints of Miss Melancholy? I have several things in mind for her after I reach 200 which I will retire her after that. She was color print of the year and I love her. This small image doesn't do her justice. I gave Lora an 11x14 of her for Christmas.
