I created this picture by going back and forth between the camera and the park bench. I was all alone here, so I didn't have the benefit of anyone's help, unfortunately! I made some errors, and didn't take enough extra shots of the different "people" so that I'd have something to fall back on in case things didn't work out right. BUT, it got the general idea across. :) This is me, and all my local friends that were willing to spend time with me on my birthday! An odd bunch, but sometimes they're all I have!

THANKS so much to all the people that wished me a happy birthday today, and dedicated one of their Picture a Day pictures to me. It was an honor that I will never forget!

Paul, this is amazing and I am trying to figure out how I didn't see it until now. I can't imagine how much time this took. I have made a few of these myself but never with myself as the subject and even still they took a long time to set up. I know you say you made some mistakes and maybe if I looked hard I might find them but all I see at this point is your great attention to detail. I am IMPRESSED by all the clothing changes and the fact that none of your poses seem to interfere with each other. Great stuff. I'll miss your daily pad. I didn't always comment, but I always checked it out.

I wonder if anyone else was in the park watching you wondering what the heck you were doing LOL. I live in a small town so things like that matter here. They all think I am crazy mabey. Many mornings or evenings I can be seen standing on the side of the road taking pictures, or on my knees with my camera a few inches away from some scary looking bug along a path at the sacramento river, just to name a few.

I like your friend in the back with his arms up in the air and no shirt better watch him he looks a little roudy and might get you into trouble if you hang out with him too much!

Love this picture it is very COOL!
