My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

I am glad I wasn't alive back then to be on the receiving end of one of those weapons. OUCH! Good one for the black and white challenge, Thad.
