Hi Jean have just had a quick look through your gallery and noticed you love taking pretty flowers too, I have been walking around the neighbourhood lately trying my new camera on macro, and really enjoying seeing all the different flowers and colours, they do brighten your day. Happy shooting (with camera of course) Dianne

Dianne, that is what I do too. Or on my way in the car and stopping where I can for a few minutes. It makes my viewing of wildflowers even more enjoyable because I can see them so much better. I can't remember the names for long but labeling a photo makes that easier too! So much fun!

I am trying to add your name to my list of favorites although Panaramio has not been letting me do that for some time.

Thanks, Jean

Jean we are having the same problem, but apparently if you click a few times where the "favourites star" used to be it should work, not sure, it is very time consuming isnt it?? Dianne

Jean Gregory Evans on September 4, 2008

Yes, Dianne, I got it to work but then Panaramio quit and I had to come back this much later to let you know that it worked finally. I had toyed with the thing and wondered if I clicked an even number or an uneven number of times worked better, but then after the scientific process, I find it makes no difference and much less sense.

Flower is very beautiful. It looks as if it would be fake. Nice shot.

Cheers from Hong Kong, Jeff
