DP Theme day : Best photo of 2006

When the theme for January was announced, I have no doubt which photo I'd pick. I love sponstaneity in my photos, besides playing of shadow and lights. Tecnically, this photo may not be my personal best ; what makes it "best" for me is I think I captured the spirit of the campaign ...Without further ado...

I will mark September 22nd on my calendar. I struggle to find a street scene without cars. So I will look forward to the day for two reasons ... You had a photo of some birds in flight which I had hope you would choose.
