First of all, thank you, Ladies, for your kind words and prayers for me and my family regarding my Dad's passing. It has been emotional time these past two days, but I am blessed and thankful that he is no longer in pain and misery from his various ailments. One bright spot during this time is that I received my new camera today. The photos below are my sample/test shots. I did a little cropping on a couple and added the faded edge to each one; also reduced the size for better storage on my hard-drive.
