I have been away from the forum for a few short days but it feels like an eternity. Thursday I got hit with either food poisoning or a real nasty bug that made everything eject out of my body that could possibly come out. I am only now starting to get over the chills and fever that I had but I still do not have any energy. On a more up-beat note I was surprised that I won Best In Show in an in-company photo contest with this image. Anyone who knows me knows I dont do photo contests but I was kind of pressured into submitting an image. Well I did and forgot all about the contest until someone told me I won, Woohoo!! My prize was a Fuji Z1 camera, a very sleek and compact PNS. I found it really funny as I was looking for one to fit in my shirt pocket so the timing was excellent. Some of my nieces were getting ready for a Tea Party and did not have enough energy to break out the D-70 so I took these images with the new toy.
