Wow, how I missed it? I cannot explain my joy when that featured image was taken - it was with a Sony Mavica which my kind friend offered me to take photos and return it. I used to do that occasionally and bring it home for a day or two, take photos and upload on DG. I was in the clouds doing that!! Dinu shooting digital pictures!! That was more than a decade ago. A latest image. Lumix FZ8
