    Thank you for all you do and for your generosity in sharing your wonderful work with us here. Your collection is a priceless resource to our modelling community and I for one am grateful to have access to it as I'm sure the Membership is as well. I have used your photos as a reference many many times over the years and never cease to be amazed at the number of "riddles" your photography solves for me! I've bookmarked this post and will use it often. I know I speak for the entire Membership when I say we are so fortunate to have you as a contributing Member of this Forum!
