  5. AbookMedhin,

    Thank you for your kind words. The pictures were taken on my cellphone (Nokia X3). It is old and battered by I love it for the quality of the pictures it takes. So, I would be lying if I said that it wasn't the work of my phone! :O) Thank you!

    Regards,

    Deep Ethiopian.
