Unfortunately,I haven't posted any pictures. It's taken me a long time to
get my hands on a camera. But pretty soon I'm going to California, so
I should get some pretty good pics there. :)

Hello Paul, thanks for you comments on "orchid ruffles". I'm so glad you enjoyed. BJ's frame (bjb) and silo work adds a world of beauty to almost any photo! I really appreciate the vote of 10! Also, thanks for viewing and commenting on "a day of reflections." The Willimantic River is indeed a good place for trout fishing. There are several deep pools along a short stretch!

Thank you Paul for your comments on "Woodlands". Sometimes I like to use my Canon 85mm Soft Focus lens to shoot nature images. It is designed for portrait images, mostly for women. It adds a softness to their image by bringing out a physical manifestation of their inner softness.
But I also like the effect it can give to Mother Nature shots as well. The setting has to be just right before I will even consider using it.

We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.

SlartiMythbartfastica!!! LOL…I’m going to remember that one!! Maybe the name of the next Artwork! I’m really pleased that you like "Southern Cross Sunset". I had a vision of it in my head, one late afternoon when the sun was setting, and I just had to make it, though I found it was more effective to generate the sky. I live in Sydney – Australia. Most people wouldn’t be familiar with the constellation, unless they are from the Southern Hemisphere. It appears on the Australian flag (and New Zealands), and in conjunction with a neighbouring constellation ‘the pointers’ was used as a navigational tool. Southern Cross Info. Thanks for your interest. (By the way – I copied over a real photo of the constellation, so it was close to the original as possible). Cheers…

Hey there! I LIKE SlartiMythbartfastica!! Slartibartfast is not my real name, but a character out of Douglas Adams novel / tv show 'HitchHikers Guide to the Galaxy'. He designs planets and builds them! So - I couldn't stop laughing at your creation, I think it's very clever! ;-)
In fact SlartiMythbartfastica could be a new character on 'Futurama'...cheers!!

Paul, I'm really appeciative of the very kind comments you left on "Together We Stand". I'm very pleased you liked it.

The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again since it is life. Since man is mortal, the only immortality possible for him is to leave something behind him that is immortal since it will always move. This is the artist’s way of scribbling; “Kilroy was here” on the wall of the final and irrevocable oblivion through which he must someday pass.
