Good profile. Infact, was concluded about your professionality which lies beneath your profile pictures accompanied with the sophisticated D3, D300s and D700. If possible and unless some of your pictures are copyrited, I would love to see some of your personal exhibited photos entitled "Let the Flowers Bloom in the Face of Terrorism" held in 2005.
"A picture says a thousand words, but sometimes that's not possible, so it's nice when you're able to draw someone close, and have them share their story. You obviously went out of your way to show an interest. Good for you Paul :-)"
