Three Years

Posted by
Bettina (Los Angeles, United States) on 31 January 2013 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Today marks my three year anniversary on Aminus. Last year was a rough year of work and I wasn't able keep up the images as faithfully as I had in the beginning. But it's as fun as ever, and I adore the friends I've made. It's a very special place and I'm glad to be here sharing with you all.
This sunset was as unusual as it looks.
Be back after the weekend.

So wonderful, Bettina...Three years! That's amazinq...I think some of the first images I enjoyed of yours were your trip a few year as ago to Arizona and seeing your daughter sitting on the railing in the corral and the shot you had of the Dairy Queen and my fav still to this day is your about image...serious lookin, beautiful, jacket, bag, two freakin cameras, reflected look , awesome lady..If there were any more of a magnificent and evocative shot that showed a brilliant and dynamic woman, I don't know where it is. Please accept my congratulations and thanks for allowing me to get to know you just a bit.My life has been forever increased and blessed....same goes for anyone who knows you on AM3! Hugs my BJ is doing good they diagnosed eschemic colitis....mrs j is doing good now tho..<3
