    WOWzer! Brilliant capture and scene full of the joy of life.
    Free Spirit is a great title.

  • Thanks so much for your compliments, Don. I’m sorry I didn’t comment on your blog about the riots. To be honest, it was unbelievable what was happening there, the extent of it and at the end who some of the rioters were. I hope you got over it OK.
