    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!
