Nelida De La Fuente from Tres Arroyos, Argentina

Sabes..Curli..un día me jubilé, no de la vida..del trabajo
y por ende, algo quedó vacío en mi..necesitaba algo
urgente que compensara..algunos tiempos míos y alguien
me dijo..ya que andas cámara en mano sacando una que
otra foto..familiares casi siempre..porqué no accedía a una
página y aquí estoy..y te lo cuento, porque me llevaste
a recordar, a mis compañeros con su pronta..y amable
palabra para aclarar..mis ideas..cuando algo no entendía.
Y a ti te considero ahora, al compañero virtual que siempre
está pronto a dar ayuda, que agradezco mucho y voy a llevar
a la práctica.
Maravillosa tu imagen, de las gotas de lluvia sobre el capó del
auto, hermoso color y luz... Un abrazo.
