Shadow Shot Sunday, Poetic Shutterbug, August 15, 2010

For once, it was a bright sunny day in San Francisco, and my friend, Joanne Olivieri
( the famous blogster, Poetic Shutterbug ) and I were in Washington Square, cameras
in hand, en route to hear our friend and jazz diva, Sony Holland perform.   We fit right in
with all the summer tourists as we began snapping away at all the famous landmarks
in sight.  I just couldn't resist getting this picture of Jo's shadow on the ground!  I've

  2. Carmen, are you sure that your email is functional?? I've sent you two emails to date!!

    I wanted to let you know, that right now, I am in the process of moving back home to the States. And when I get there and am settled in, I will purchase your book. :)

    I was saying in my email, how I think it's funny that when my book came out, you were in the process of moving, and now that your book has come out, I am in the process of moving! :)

    Maybe we could meet each other and hang out! I'm sure there is a lot I can learn from you, and I love to learn from people! :)
