Results from Mini Challenge #644

I want to start by saying thank you all for your patience and participation. It's because of you that the Mini Challenge keeps going even when there are a few glitches along the way.

I also want to compliment you for the comments you paid to one another about the amazing photographs. You gave each other a chance to see places and things you might never have had an opportunity to see. In my humble opinion that's one of the most important things about having the challenge. I think it inspires us to go out and visit some of the places we've seen or at least go some place.

Thank you very much for your comments about my mishap. I really appreciate your willingness to let me pick the winners of this challenge. It is an honor and always has been.
