Inspiration

Uploaded: November 06, 2006

Description

This is an old file that I reworked to correct for noise & film grain. The original was taken at Centerville Beach in Ferndale, CA at sunset with Kodak Ultra Color Pro Gold film.

This is for my Dad. Today is his birthday & I wish I could be there!
Dad, Thank you for always being an inspiration to me! I love you & I hope you have the best birthday ever!
Love,
Michelle
