      Lord V; Gracias for your compliment!

      Marko_K; I appreciate it!

      TheresaPotgieter; Thanks! It was purely accident that I discovered the background. I had her out for photos and she happend to crawl onto the trash sack which I had sitting on the counter... I thought "Oh, that looks kinda neat!" So I propped it up in the back for a backdrop and shot away!

      I Doddy; Thanks a lot!
