Wow!!! You guys are so unpredictable and so amazing! It only took 8 years for my first 7.
I thought for sure that my "Best of 2018" ( my cat in a mirror _)was going to be a blockbuster.....but it barely hit 5 without a comment. I can never figure you out. I thought this was a 5.8 max..It is the first and only shot I've taken with my iPhone.

Don, I am getting a lot of mileage with Amish on the beach. There is a community in Sarasota and they always look so out of context and juxtaposed that I cannot resist.

Thanks again everyone for your wonderful comments and generous scores. I am over the moon!

Dropping in on my way back out to let Jane know just how proud I am of her accomplishment. I had a bunch of goals here before I left and the only one I never got was winning a Free Study (though I notice that the people who managed to relegate me to 2nd multiple times didn't enter - but this ain't about me. And hey, I DID win the unofficial yearly crown so... LOL). Regardless, having been a part of this adventure with Jane it's a pure testimony to "It's not the tool, it's the craftsman", and Jane is an Amish beachgoers magnet, which is a surefire recipe for amazing shots.

This is the epitome of street photography meets beach/bird photography and I love the heck out of it. It deserves to be celebrated and you all did just that. Congrats, Jane!!
