What a perfect shot. And thanks for following my blog; i truly appreciate that and hope you will enjoy what you see. Interesting that you use a Nikon, as my husband does for the shots he takes for me to accompany my articles; snaps on my blog are usually my poor efforts with a little Zony (but it does have a Zeiss lens). Ann from UK.

john m. mora,
yeah about that protocol! uh, it's really complicated. see it's just that ... well, i am a simpleton and i prefer to think about these things like a simpleton.
so, here's the protocol for using the photo in a form of art work:
1. first, thanks for thinking my stuff is worthy of this compliment.
2. if ya do anything with your art ... congratulations that you are able to do that. what a skill!
3. send me a photo copy ... so i can at least see what you did ... because i like you artsy fartsy types because i can't do it.
4. say nice things about me. tell people i am good looking if you wish.
5. get a nikonsniper tattoo (optional).

if you can handle this protocol (strict rules) ... well then i am good with your use of the photo. i am always fascinated at which photos people find worthy of this compliment. some of my very favorites ... don't even get responses. that should tell you a bit about my personal taste.

all the best.

Gosh! It seems only a short time ago that these beautiful scenes were what I expected every year. Seeing your photos brought me back to Chicago.
