Just thought I'd share all the websites I have saved that have wonderful photos... you guys must have seen many of these already, but still, just in case.... and also, I have posted this on <a href="http://www.sashafans.com" target="top">sashafans.com</a>, <a href="http://pub1.ezboard.com/bmichellekwanforum" target="top">MKF</a> and <a href="http://pub69.ezboard.com/bfigureskatinglovers" target="top">Figure Skating Lovers</a>, so if you read this post already... umm, yes, I am posting this EVERYWHERE. HEHHE. I worked on this post, I feel so proud, hahaha... :lol:
My FAVORITE sites are marked with this smilie! I also wanted to post my favorite pics from each site, but that would take even longer, so never mind
-<a href="http://www.geocities.com/Colosseum/Park/4435/" target="top">Manuella Federella's Online Photographic Gallery</a> Okay, so this dude takes AMAZING photos. Once you enter the site, it'll take you to a gallery which starts with pictures of Fusar-Poli & Margaglio, but if you look towards the bottom of the page there is a link entitled:<a href="http://web.tiscali.it/MFGallery/index1999-2000.html" target="top">Old Photo Gallery: Moments from the 1999-2000 Skating Season</a> ... and that takes you to some amazing photos as well. This guy just captures the light so well! And there are lots of black and white photos, which I also love! There weren't many photos of my favorite skaters, but I enjoyed looking through those photos anyway because he is such a great photographer.

You gotta really look for the skating photos, but for the people who like the other winter sports, here ya go!!! A day by day picture thing of almost all the sports, I think. There were some hilarious photos in there.... look hard!
WHOA, I think this is the LONGEST thing that I have ever posted! My fingers feel funny, LOL... I've been meaning to post all these links for quite a while, I just never got around to it. I'm always up really, really late (I've had horrible insomnia every single night for more than a year now!), and I just decided to post this since I couldn't sleep, as usual!
