Well the response to this entry is bringing some very warm and wonderful feelings to me -- thank you all so very much. I was worried that this version was too dark but maybe it's not :) I even got a couple of personal e-mails from friends who had commented here in the thread but wanted to make sure I knew they REALLY liked the image -- means a lot when that happens. One of those friends is Mel and she shared an original poem which she said I could share with you as I liked it so much.

As I Sat Upon My Day Bed
The Breeze Began to Blow
Chasing Away The Cobwebs
And Urging Me to Go

I like the idea that the outdoors is beckoning through that open window. Thanks, Mel. #7847411

I really have to share this win with everyone who has ever let me know -- in any way -- that they like the photo. And Michele, I have also had several 8x12's made for people and it does print up well. I'm sure I'll have one made for myself one of these days.

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.


The following truth is one of the core philosophies of BetterPhoto:

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
