Friendship is a language spoken by heart...
not written on paper, not given by pledge...
it is a promise renewed every time we meet. Keep in touch.

A little at a loss for words here.
Can't thank everyone enough for the favs and comments - that's where it's all at in my opinion.
I about s**t when I saw this on the home page, as I had absolutely no clue.
w00t!

Good thinking Brad. Shooting a high key image that turns out as a nearly natural low key image works really well. Congrats Brad, I was starting to miss your shots from the front page. Keep up the good work.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/03/2006 02:58:45 AM
I knew this would be the blue ribbon.....
I loved it the first moment I saw it. and I think I would have been the first to add it as a favorite as well.....
I gave you a "10", but can't believe the small number of tens that you received, but it doesn't matter, as you still got the blue.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/03/2006 02:56:47 AM
