/ Hi Joseph. Some people do enjoy doing steret photography with a long zoom lens, and I imagine it must be a little less scary to do it that way but then there are others who enjoy a short focal length, so the viewpoint is more natural, and they can get right in the thick of the action'. It may also freak some people out if they saw someone with a really long lens taking surreptious photos of them ! It's all food for thought.

Betty and family I am sorry to hear of the passing of your Mother. Although I did not know her, I feel as though I did through the many stories you have told over the years. I am thinking of you and pray the Lord will bring you comfort. With deepest sympathy, Tamara Carter

Our condolences to the family. I have many fond memories of Aunt Helen picking vegetables in her garden and frying up something in the kitchen. nd best of all trying to get me to drink milk straight from the cow instead of the carton!
