Hi Carolyn,
Thanks so much for your kind words. I really love this part of Universal too; I guess it is the different colors and patterns of the brickwork. I am always going to this part of the park to take photos; I am just drawn there. Here I used a program that simulates the HDR process but with one image. It's called Dynamic Photo-HDR. I am using the trial version for now, but hope to order it one day. I really like to play around with it!

Peter, thank you for looking and for your kind comment! Hope you have a great weekend! #7875269

Gosh, what a surprise! Thank you all so much for your support and kind words!! I didn't even think about what time of the month it was, so I just now found out finalists were out! We have been moving steady for several days and I haven't had time to even think about BP or photography! I didn't know we had so much stuff! I am getting rid of a lot but may get rid of even more. It shouldn't be this hard to move! And thanks again! #7964566

Gary, Frank, Mithc, Dr Silly, and Danny, thank you all for your kind comments! I was watching Bethoven's Big Break with Justin recently and much of it was filmed at Universal. In one scene, the dog was standing right in this alley probably about midways on this pathway! #8688742
