"Thank you...thanks....." (applause...) "Thank you......Yes!"

Crowd noises fade to silence....
"Thank you all...so vurrry much..."
(said as she flips her blond hair back with an expression of pride and confidence)
"First of all I'd like to thank my mother and father....who brought me into this realm...my producer.....without whom I could not have........"

WAIT!!!!! HOLD ON!!!!!

She shakes her head.....staggers out of bed.... splashes cold water on her face while looking into the mirror half asleep....

Huh? where am I? Oh. Darn it. Well not really!!!!!!!!! Wow. FUN!!!!!

Yeah well.....he (JEB) took a shot of me and I of him. Either he's so much better looking than I am or I am just so much of a better photog. Hmmm. I like the "I'm a better photog" take.....but that's so far from the truth. Jeb. Jackson Emery Boyd. Jebby...(my first summer love...in 1975! awwwwwwwww ) has been a major influence on my choices for creative expression for the last year and a half/or more. Thanks Jeb for bringing another addiction into my life. My paintbrushes are crying for attention and my kiln stands empty, open and barren waiting to fire some pottery......although I did get Jebby to throw on the wheel! What a hoot!

This shot is a tribute to an excellent photographer, a kind and gentle soul, a human of superior intelligence who possesses keen awareness and great sensitivity. I WISH I could hold the amount of techo - savyness (sounds good..) he has in my sweet little blond/grey head.....I learn so much from him whenever we "photo" together. Those of you that know him have been "gifted with his presents" Jeb has great abilities. He is a deeply caring and helpful man who would stop anywhere and stop anything he is doing to aid someone in need and to humor and bring a smile onto ANYONE'S face. Not only is he generous and sweet, he is strong and substantial, interested and interesting, lively and charismatic, full of life and optimism. And....and did I mention he's a honkin' handsome stud muffin that tells the raunchiest jokes that make me bend over in laughter and brings me out of deep deep darkness into the light......

The photographer's reflection distracts me from the portrait, which is strong and well lit.

Very nicely presented, well edited and taken. Nice work

I really like this shot although i would like the right lens to have no photog in it, but nonetheless its still an eye catching image.

Best in show award, congrats

Nice black and white. Love the detail. You can even see that it says "Ray Ban" on the lens... which is amazing focus! Love the reflections as well. Beautiful, simply beautiful!

Super. A solid 9 from me.
