    Garry, I am so so sorry. Since you and I have already been in touch about this, I won't write my feelings again about Tilly, the little larger that life girl who lived everyday to the fullest. Perhaps you can put together a book for your friend. At first it will be hard but cathartic...and...

    Garry, you know how thrilled I was to hear this - an answer to many prayers and wishes - hooray!!!!! At some point, please let us know how Tilly was found. I know there are many who are celebrating Tilly's being found, but none as much as you and your friend, Tilly's owner. Three cheers for this...

    Oh Garry - to think that this Tilly's is the story that brought me back here. Can't even imagine it. Everyone that see and reads this will have their thoughts with you and Tilly and her owner/your friend - and picturing you all together again safe and sound.

    Oh Ray, I just heard of your heartbreaking news from Garry. I am so terribly sorry for yours and your wife's great loss. I do know how incredibly difficult it is, even when you know you did right by Millie. She was a soulful girl as well as a sweetheart I know. Thank you for all these photos. I...

    I've never had pet insurance...and we sure have spent a lot of money on our pets. Just before Christmas we sadly had to put our 18 year old cat to sleep after a round of treatments...then our dog was in the hospital for almost a week - very expensive!!!! But we love them so we take care of them...

    Oh I am so sorry that Little B has had such a continuing rough go. I hadn't realized he was having problems again. I do hope he'll be feeling 100% well soon!

    Very dreamy, Don...and perhaps just a bit sinister? Or perhaps that's only my interpretation...too many murder mysteries running around my brain, maybe?:wink:

    Richard, thanks so much for that link. They're an impressive crew. I take my hat off to them for their courage and determination and surely hope their trip is both safe and successful. I hope you'll remind us about their trip/adventure. Personally, I am much to much of a "wimp" to ever even...

    Love that blue sky doorway in your first, Stephen! I remember when this camera came out...and Rico you strongly suggested I'd like it. One of these days I probably will get back into having a camera with interchangeable lenses...and this one just might be it!

    News Saying Goodbye

    Steve, thank you for not just fading away. That said, I do hope if and when the spirit moves you that you'll stop by and say hello. I am very sorry to read that your eyesight is failing. I wish you all the best with your life and your family, Steve. You will be missed.

    Fuji New X-A2 & lenses, New X-Q2 and others

    You know, I used to feel I required a viewfinder - a really good one. I can see it if you're using manual focus on something fine...or legacy lenses, however I've gotten quite used to not having a viewfinder. Perhaps it is my aging eyes but I find framing is the main thing for me. These cameras...

    Single in January 2015 - How's the ride? (Days 1-10)

    I've debated about posting in here, so I'll keep it brief. I did explain more in my yesterday's (January 5th's) photo. Don't want to derail this thread at all. I'll just say here that I so appreciate everyone's photographs (many which I haven't seen - yet) and everyone's reactions to my own. Not...

    Softly beautiful. It feels as though it must have been very, very quiet. How fortunate you were to be there to see this at that moment.

    Comment by 'BBW' in media 'SIJ - Day 03'

    My first reaction was that the blues and yellows were beautiful. Then as I read what kind of building it was, I could imagine the warmth inside with all that swimming pool humidity...and felt myself slipping into that warm water. What a cool view you found!

    Comment by 'BBW' in media 'SiJ15 - Day 3 - Lines & Shadows'

    I like the grittiness of this very much, as well as the high contrast...the shadows coming in on a slant, the lines on the pavement...and the buildings in the background that seem to be bathed in fog or mist - and that dark palm tree on the right really helps counterbalance the man walking hands...

    This is very interesting. I wish I hadn't read your least not until I'd reacted. Very impressionistic. You might try more like this, especially if you get a little bit of sunlight. You did well to see this!

    Wow, Bill - that was some day you had! And then the kind hearted wild boar family at home to greet you and your wife! I'll tell you, this photograph is beautiful. I think this is could be my all time favorite of yours that I've ever seen. There is a real 3D feeling... I, too, can smell the sale...

    I'd forgotten about that thread, Bill. Now I remember.. Yes, I was wondering about the printers. Of course when one is as obsessive about "getting the look" to be the way I want it...I might be disappointed by the results..but heck, it's better than never getting around to printing at all!

    I do believe your wife becomes ever more beautiful. From an aesthetic viewpoint the colors and stripes are wonderful against the dark background of the stonework - and her earrings play off very nicely too. Zulma looks relaxed and at ease. This is a lovely, natural portrait of your muse and soul...

    Thank you, Mark - he's such a handsome fellow and it's good to see that glint in his eye. I admire you and your wife so much for what you do. Must also add that I like the old timey faded film look very much. I hope you have a wall of photos somewhere with all of your rescues in their full glory!

    All is forgiven - I'm sure you're right about the badger/boar bristles and like to think they didn't have to give up their lives for this kind of luxurious shave. Thanks for the clarification as well as the photos! I bet this all does make a big difference.
