7 Jan "No Chains - No Gains"

By GeorgeRusky
Good Evening and
Welcome to
2010 G.Rusky Photography!

Thank you very much for your kind comments and abundant clicks in 2009!
This photo I've been tempting to send since the time when the streets of Prague were full of warm autumn sunshine and for most of us snowy winter days were out of sight and out of mind Smile
As the New Year makes its start in serious eco-conditions, I believe this simple street photo will define our mutual hope to tear the chains of hard times and (very soon) gain a better future!

It looks like you've got yourself a new model George, I suppose the reason you picked her was that she wouldn't answer you back!

Good morning George,
A (belated) but very sincere Happy New Year to you and family from me and my family in Canada, while agreeing with the sentiments you express in your introduction.
You have captured a vert seductive selling job with this one George, I'm convinced I should go find what? Smile
Thank you ever so much for all your support and encouragement in the past year George, and looking forward to its continuance in this new year, which unfortunarely, has got off to a poor start for me, as far as health and photography are concerned, early days though, plenty of time to get going again!
Best wishes, Jim
