  1. as always Bev - incredible shots that capture the magic that was in the air the moment your magic finger hit the button! The energy just explodes out of these images! Two of these I'd also never seen (Kill City with Benny, Ron and Steve and the Zero Boys). would you mind if I shared the Zero Boys image with them via email? They'd love to see this and would TOTALLY respect your copyright. Cheers! see you around soon I hope - Doug
