Happiness is the KEY...

Nikon D80, f/7.1, 100 mm, ISO 250, o Flash

As quoted by Albert Schweitzer:


"Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful."


I am a Mom....and I love doing it. Nothing else in this world makes me happier than my kids, so in that sense, I am extremely successful. For that, I am blessed.

Picture of my keychain in the street, edited to B & W, adjusted saturation/contrast and framed.

I agree with Breezi...I love the asphalt as the background. It's really unique. Great quote, too.

VERY COOL! Was the picture on your keychain in color? I kind of think that would look AWESOME popping against the asphault.

BUT, As is I think it really is cool. The picture drew my eyes in and I really had to examine all the detail--pretty cool picture!

Thanks guys! No, the keychain was already "black & white", but it looked more bluish against the asphault, so that's why I changed it in PS.
