  19. Jane, what beautiful and striking images to end the year.
    Without question, “It’s Complicated” is my favorite. It is as the title implies, complicated but my eye keeps returning the the three workers. What’s fun about the image is I keep looking for new information. It’s not an image to look at briefly and move on. That makes it special for me.
    Happy New Year and my 2018 be a year of continued success.
