No problem, Cbad !!
Theme for Dezember is 'Portrait'.

A portrait is a photograph of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. For this reason, in photography a portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of a person in a still position. A portrait often shows a person looking directly at the painter or photographer, in order to most successfully engage the subject with the viewer.

Sorry; cannot answer via PM.
