  1. Oh man…I wish I would have invented the hot dog! 🙂

    I love the grouping of the lovely ladies…the textures and beautiful faces make these very interesting!

  2. I’ve actually heard of this man – he’s got some babes watching over him.
    Your middle photo is my favorite – I love your composition. Looks as if you are enjoying exploring black and white posts – love it!

  3. Wow, there sure does seem to be some riches attributed to hot dogs! I heard that Mr. French’s crypt is made of solid gold mustard seed.
