Date: Sep 6, 2008

Date Uploaded: Jan 11, 2009

From this summer at a antique shop with lots of crazy items hanging in front of the shop. May not be my best of 2008, but it will do for the challenge. This is an outtake from the DOF challenge. Actually shot with a Nikon D300 and 80-400 lens that I used at a Nikon Safari.

************************************
Seems like a good way to end my first year doing photography and at DPC. I have a long way to go but a 36% finish against such a fine group of photos says that I am heading in the right direction!
