1st place
Into the Canopy by sitagirl02

Nikoneer: This is an excellent capture of a happy day in the ongoing history you and your son are creating. The perspective of the near-converging lines of the bridge, the mouth of the foliage tunnel at its apex, and your son smack in the middle, head turned just enough to evoke exploration on his part, all in good focus and the more evocative b&w treatment, makes this a real keeper. I'm hoping you have it printed large, framed, and hanging in a prominent place in your home to put a smile on every guest who sees it. A fav for me.

Happy Trails

3rd place
Going Hiking by Pistos

LynEve: That's a great story - the world needs more like you and that lad !

jerseygurl: Congrats, Jeff on taking 3rd place in the contest!!!!!!!

biffobear: That's a good story...I'm worn out..I feel I've walked 20 miles today...R.

Nikoneer: Sharing your experience, interest, and time to youngsters is one of the best things a person can do. While you were definitely the mentor this young man needed, precisely when he needed one. I feel certain, Jeff, that over those years there were plenty of kids to whose lives you added so much. I^m not Jewish but, in that culture, you would definitely be considered a true ^mensch^.


4th place
The Old Bow and Hook by casechaser

Flmngseabass: Congrats John for your 4th place win. Well deserved:):)

Nikoneer: A bit of a departure for you, John, but a well-done one, indeed. And better it be Captain James Hook at the helm and not Barnacle Bill. Lyrics like:

A special offer for today
I'll tell you what I'll do
All those who sign without delay
Will get a free tattoo
Why, it's like money in the bank
Come on!
Join up and I'll be frank
Unless you do
You'll walk the plank
The choice is up to you.

...are mostly preferable to those of Bills I heard while serving in the Navy.
