This card was a struggle to create. I began photographing the wands in July 2010. That was challenging enough -- I rigged a rotating rod with the wand secured to it, and moved it for the different angles -- but the real issue was during the photomanipulation. As I began working on the card, we lost power and my computer shut down, the battery backup failing. It fried the file and many hours of tedious cut and paste work. UGH! I had to do that work three times over before I finally got it to save. Well, it was worth the effort.
