We loaded up the car to go driving out in the country. I had stopped and forced my hubby to pose/walk for a few shots. We were looking for another location when we passed this old guy walking from his barn to his house. I made my hubby back up and I asked him if I could take his picture. He smiled and said "oh you don't want me in it, I'd break the camera." I said no you won't and snapped off about 6 shots. This was the very last one. I plan to drive back out and hopefully find his house and leave a copy of the print in his mailbox to thank him.


My head is still spinning. This is my highest finish and one of my proudest shots. Thanks to everyone who voted and left such wonderful comments.
