  22. Red HOT. This is one of those picutres I would love to be able to capture with paint. Won't happen. It looks simple but to achieve this look is so complex. I haven't been able to do it yet.

  58. This is such a powerful photo.

    Thanks for comment of my good sense of humor. It is there when I am at home blogging. You can't find it when I am in school with my kids coming up and asking to go to the toilet right after tea break or lunchbreak.

    Do you let them go when they should have gone 5 minutes ago, or do you say no and risk an accident? LOl Of course, I let them go. They may have an issue there.
