The new year....2010



A warm greeting to friends and family who follow this modest attempt at improving my images. I have posted 265 times in 2009 and I do appreciate your comments, especially those suggestions for improvement and sentiments of outright support for this effort. I read & am cheered by each comment.

There are 100 images left to fulfill this commitment and I plan to use my D80 more in 2010. We will see what we will see. I wish you all light and sweetness in the new year. Tina
