Kathy Radford August 03, 2008

Hi Steve, Congrats on the beautiful job with this shot. I haven't been on very much lately as my computer crashed. Had to buy a new computer and pay someone to retrieve my photos from my old hard drive. Unfortunately many of my recent shots have been permanently lost. Almost 200 of my shots of Boston Harbor were lost. What a bummer. I had some gorgeous shots of the harbor. You have so many awards on your gallery, great job. I haven't even gotten Editor's Pick in a long time. I don't know what's wrong, am I getting worse instead of better?
