I'm so proud .....

    ...... that this photo of my mother's hands was used by the Salvation Army for their Heat Wave poster campaign in NYC. It was beautifully produced, which my photos by far fail to do justice to.

    Awesome to think that a photo of mine might help people.
    (Please let me know if you see one -- it would be nice to see it in its setting.)
