this is my wife, listening to sting of course ... look at her expresion :D

anyhow, the very cool thing is that the editors at kodak.com emailed me and asked "when is your wife's birthday?" i told them, december 14. the emailed me back, saying okay, her pic is going up dec 14th :wink now how cool is that? i just ordered some broadway show tickets, we'll do a little dinner at a fancy place i know of, and i think i'll arrange for an overnight sitter and maybe we'll stay at the waldorf or the plaza for the night too :lust :lust

enjoy (making your spouse deleriously happy) photography,

    Fantastic and congrats, Andy! Your wife is beautiful, and you captured her expression beautifully. I love the black and white on it, too.

    That will be so exciting on her birthday. Are you going to be able to keep it a secret that long, or will she know, does she know already?

    A wonderful photograph!

    I have seen whole television shows on that subject. Lots of people are not getting lucky, not like they used to. smile.

    Don't plan too much for that evening, you all are going to be exhausted when you get home.mwink.gif Kind of like expecting to get lucky on your wedding night!
    (I don't know many who have:roll )

    OK, on to the root canal............. At least the root canals should be over with by next year at this time. I can't imagine having that many teeth.

    Good luck, you were even sounding happier, etc.

    Awesome, congratulations! And good luck with your "plans", too. I myself have enough trouble planning that sort of thing a day ahead, let alone 3 months. And I only have 2 kids!

    I'm really interested in figuring out some of the behind-the-scenes processes that go into making a great shot, I was wondering if you could post the original? There's a certain "something" that takes a good shot and elevates it, and I'm trying to get my head around it...

    Hmmm, do you think I could get lucky if I take a really good picture of my husband, and win a contest? Maybe if I win a contest with a picture of Red? He'd like that. Red's really his dog. I think I'd have a better chance of winning with a photo of Red. Yes, I'll start planning it now. iloveyou.gif

    i doubt if you walked in *right now* on your husband and said "honey, let's ....." i doubt if he'd say no. seriously. give that a try and report back :D
