Very proud of you and happy to share in your joy. But I must say that it comes as no particular suprise; we all know you have quite an eye. And more importantly you get out there and hustle with it.

Beautiful shot!

The bad news is, the guy in the lower right is pulling up his swim suit and is at this moment filing papers to sue you!

Yup, a lot of folks out there with magnifying glasses!

stratman & xs400 - cheers guys

magnum1 - hah! dont worry i had a birds eye view and i can assure you that the gentlemen in question would indeed, need a micrscopic instrument of magnification,focused on a particular area,to really suggest any sign of offensive,degrading material that may subject him to any self embarrasment in the media's eye. hah!
