I had a scare, just before Christmas. I went on a day shoot, and when I got home, I found my keys were missing. So, I went back to the site, and behold - there they were!!!!!!!!!!! Happiness can be a small thing!

I have replaced the background, but other than that, just the usual. Quick fixes, and sharpening.

Teriffic shot, Leanne! Wonderfully composed and captured! Love the shades and details! ... Losing keys or eyeglasses or other little things we depend on can reeeeally mess up a day! Glad this story has a happy ending! #203918

Lucky you!! I lost my wallet once with all my money for vacation in it. Didn't discover it was missing til the next day. Called a friend who had given me a ride home the night before and sure enough, there it was in the seat of the unlocked car. Can really be a relief, huh? #1025940

Why keys can't be a bit more appreciative? I mean, we give them safe homes on rings, we keep them in warm, protected places like pockets and purses-we even clone them to show their importance. The least they could do when we set them down in unfamiliar surroundings is send out a jingle or a jangle when we start to leave without them. #1026196

Leanne M.E. Boyd January 10, 2005

Janet, Stan, Kathryn, and Noel! Thanks very much for your comments! Noel, you would win the Nobel Peace prize if you invent keys that talked! I'll buy the first one sold! #1026208
