Yo, Curly - Thanks for the kind words. Please allow me to apologize for my infrequent comments on our site. I've been 'crazy' busy of late - and it looks as though this shall remain the case for a bit longer. I've been auto-posting to AM3 - but not having much time to check-in. Right now - I'm in Oregon visiting with my younger brother in his town of (not a joke) - 'Independence'! This is allowing me to take a breather and to touch base. I'm really looking forward to documenting this town's over-the-top Fourth-of-July celebration. The parade starts at noon - and the fireworks (last night and tonight) start at 10 PM. *-BANG !-* Best to you , mate!

I have to admire your skill in this fireworks image. I always seem to make a real mess of mine. Hope you are enjoying your day.
