A Dedication To Trish- friend, photographer (check out her blog!) Trish is the lovely lady in the black and white box to the right of this title.

This 365 day challenge, to take and post a photo a day, has really stretched my creativity, photography skills and mental stability. Having said that, I decided that I will dedicate a picture to each member of the photography club which I belong. This first dedication is for my friend Trish, an Obama supporter. I know that she will smile seeing this picture and that is the reason for me taking it today. Obama, though not of my political leanings, is an example of America's greatness and a testament to the continued growth of our country. America has elected a black man to the presidency in 2008, wonderfully progressive considering the country has a long history of slavery and civil rights problems. I wish Obama well because I will benefit from him being a good president. I saw a statistic yesterday that nearly 70 percent of people polled have faith that Obama will govern the United States with the best of intentions. The country needs to feel positive and hopeful and I do hope that Obama delivers.
Trish, here it is....your dedication!

How'd you take that picture? It's cool:) A good dedication. Trish is definitely the spitting image of positive thinking and hope. Haven't known her that long, but she makes an impact right away with her kindness and words!

Nice post today!

Gosh...I don't know what to say...I'm humbled! Thank you so much, Steve, for a beautiful dedication. I am truly honored!!! I love your image (yes, how DID you take that picture? Is it a poster? Or a "photoshopped" creation?). THANK YOU...THANK YOU...THANK YOU...what a lovely honor!!! Gosh, my headband is feeling mighty tight...must be shrinking. Wait...no...it's MY HEAD THAT'S GETTING LARGER!!!! Look what you've done to me! :-) Seriously, thank you my friend...I appreciate your very kind words (and yours as well, Jayme!). Goodnight! :-)
