Thanks, Bill!

Wonderful entries from you!

Like the psychedelic look of the tunnel, the connection between the two people and of course, the boat and that name

at the garden ...

Caught this image of my grand-daughter playing in a rose garden at a local park. I was shooting directly into a setting sun and couldn't see very well to frame in the lcd screen. I like the highlights and lens flare - gives it an old photo look.

Taken with my old Panasonic FS-7

grandchildren make me tired ...

I wish they could bottle and sell the energy these young ones have. Grand-daughter at a new playground at Lake Erie.

Taken with my Pentax MX-1 @ f8, 1/13 sec, ISO 100 for a deliberately blurred shot.
