I fell in love with photography in 68-69 when i was living in Berkeley. Purchased a 35mm at a pawn shop for $12.00 and never looked back.
I hope that when people look at my photos you will not just compliment my work, but give me "constructive criticism". It's how i learn, one thing about photography i have come to realize is, it never ends, there is no "perfect shot" and i can always have done it differently.
That is the beauty and the beast and my love for it and sharing the experience with like minded people is truly icing on the spaghetti !!
Raul...could you be the same person that was my jr. prom date...got a notion to look up old friends who impacted my junior years and you were one of them...maybe? If so, I'd love to hear where life has taken you. Louise Jewell, lower merion, ocean city, the park by merion station, etc.
firstname.lastname@example.org and I'm on facebook.
I hope that you are well.
Today I was visiting an animal farm in the Cotswold’s in England where I came across the following text about the Horse. I thought you would be interested in this.
Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride, friendship without envy or beauty without vanity?
Here where grace is laced with muscle, and strength by gentleness confined.
He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity.
There is nothing so powerful. Nothing less violent. There is nothing so quick. Nothing more patient.
England’s past has been borne on his back.
All our history is his industry,
we are his heirs, he is our inheritance

I wish you a merry Christmas and a very healthful and happy new year 2009. Thanks for your friendship and nice comments on my pictures.
I hope we can continue our friendship and share our pictures also in 2009.
Best regards, Gert
Hello Raul, thanks for your comment on "Fly No More.
Yes, the fly really does add something. I took four very close shots and he never seemed to notice me.
I had planned on doing a daily series of the birds progression as he decomposed, but the next day he was gone.
Hi, thanks for the comment re: House with Vines, Lovran.
I walked past that house with a large group of people and it just looked so beautiful to me - I knew there was potential for a nice photograph. Oddly, no one else in the group showed the slightest interest. Glad you enjoyed it.
I did reach my friends from the boat recently. Sadly, the boat is no more (sank) but I've re-established contact with my old friends. This fotocommunity thing is working out!
Hi Raul - Your comment made me smile But you are much too kind.
There is always so much to learn.
I used only a UV filter on this lens
(Is that the same as a polarizing filter? lol - see i know nothing Raul - I am not very good with the tech stuff, ask Sue and Harold Thompson, they are trying to teach me Photo shop lol.) Thanks for all your great comments, appreciated.
Best Regards from Australia and me
Thank you very much for viewing so many of my photographs and for the comments relating to each of them which is much appreciated.
I trust that things are well with you so distant from my location which is Cheltenham England!
Until next time Best Wishes,
Thanks for your comment.
I can sympathise with your view on the title of my photograph but I would also comment that perhaps man should not ride horses or should not have used horses as beasts of labour. I believe that all of these activities result in a degree of stress and pain to the animal. Where would mankind be today if it were not for the horse? The same of course also goes today for all other domesticated animals exploited for our purpose. Realistically, for all of these activities man has to be the “Master”!
