Viewfinder from Bradenton, FL, United States

A beautiful composition of a beautiful land/seascape. I echo the enthusiasm of posters who arrived and commented ahead of me for this photo.

And I share your sense of being blessed at the chance to be together at Tarpon Springs, for that special day we all spent there. You and Georgie, Judy and Mike, and Barbara are special friends; one of my best thrills (in addition to meeting "in person" finally) was also to introduce my Am3 friends to Chris on something more than a cold computer screen. Now when I talk about one of your posts or comments, she will have a shared day in Tarpon Springs as a frame of permanent reference.

13 Sep 2010 7:52pm

@Viewfinder: Thank you very much Glenn! Yes, I would hope that we could expand this experience to other AM3 friends so that they can also put a face, a voice and a personality to the photos we view each day..... ;-)
