[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
"The tradition of the New Year's Resolutions goes all the way back to 153 BC. Janus, a mythical king of early Rome was placed at the head of the calendar.

With two faces, Janus could look back on past events and forward to the future. Janus became the ancient symbol for resolutions and many Romans looked for forgiveness from their enemies and also exchanged gifts before the beginning of each year..."

Let us hope that we all have a wonderful 2007.

Beautiful composition Lurdes, on the border between photography and abstract painting (I know it is floral but somehow prefer to take a step back and forget about it). Thanks for the resolution and may it come true,

May this year your give what 2006 is forgotten Lurdes

Hi Lurdes,
I love what you have done!! the frame and the year in flowers! just wonderful

Happy new year!!!


You will have to clue me in on how you did the numbers in Photofilter!!!

A lovely creative work, Lurdes. I do like the way in which you have incorporated nature, which you love so much, into the image, incl. expanding the center of a flower into fireworks - very symbolical.
Cheers, Cordelia :)
