Dear Mr. McCandless: I've got an invitation by Mrs. Jean Evans, to leave a comment at this photo... well!

I am a (former professional) photographer from Germany, and I am a member of Panoramio for one year now. I love to see all these beautiful photos here; and to talk about them with others... I've found so many, many friends, all around the world - it is the reason of Panoramio... and now I'm a member of the "Elephant Club" in Poland!!! We are having some contest here, but fun is most important...

Borders and distances are gone, and all Nations are getting one here!

I feel very honored, to be told by Jean, for your article - where and when could I read it?

Congratulation, Jean for getting interviewed!

Many greetings around the globe,

I gladly agree with all the nice words I just read under this great portrait.

Congratulations Mr. McCandless and Jean for this fruitful interview! (Obviously I have not read the article, but I know it will be awesome!)

update on the news article:

Colin has told me that the article is

going to run it as the lead feature story in our "Living in Macon" section Friday, so it will receive top billing there and therefore should also be available online for easy web access.

Thank you, everyone!

Thanks for the update, Jean. We're all on tenterhooks now!

Jean Gregory Evans on November 13, 2008

Great article Jean you have done so well, I didnt realise you were an artist. I hope to see some of your painting photographed also. Colin did himself proud and you of course with the article, I didnt realise it would be such a large one. Great stuff. Dianne (Australia)will be interesing to see how many countries The Franklin Press is read this week.

Cal Kimola Brown on November 13, 2008

Wow! Hot off the press, what a great article Jean, I learned a lot about Google Earth and about you too. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful story.

Sue Allen on November 13, 2008

Wow, wow, wow, what a fantastic article, so interesting, and yes, I've learned something about Google Earth I didn't know, (ie the geology layers - I've always been so busy heading to my usual places, that I hadn't investigated what that was all about.) Congratulations to Colin for putting together such an informative and interesting article, (ok, so I'm biased, but if that doesn't up the usage of Google Earth and Panoramio in Macon county, I'll eat my hat!!)

Jean, you dark, dark horse, you! So you're an artist, and you never mentioned it once! I'm very honoured to know such a clever lady, and one who's got such a lot of get up and go, Jean, you're a gem! (And thank you so much for my moment of glory, in the article, I'm wearing sunnies this afternoon, in case I'm mobbed,tee hee, so goodness knows, you'll have to die your hair, wear sunnies and walk with a limp... unless you did do to start with, of course, then it would be better to walk without a limp......I digress. Congratulations, Jean, you've made a real difference to the world, and I'm just so happy with the pair of you!

Very best wishes to you,


Josef Grohs on November 14, 2008

Hello Sue Allen, please would you be so kind to give a link to that article mentioned above ? Thanks from Austria.

Sue Allen on November 14, 2008

Hi, guiseppe, the link's in Jean's comment 5 comments above here, which starts...Hi Everyone!'s well worth reading! If you can't get the web page to open, ( I couldn't when I tried, for some reason) you may be able to view a 'cached snapshot of the page' by Google, if you have an error message come up when trying to view the normal Franklin Press pages.

I think it's a wonderful thing to happen to Panoramio, and I wish our newspaper would take some interest in it too. I might just bring it to the attention of the 'Gympie Times'!

Very best wishes to you, guiseppe, and very best wishes to you too, Jean!

Sue :D

Josef Grohs on November 14, 2008

Thousand thanks, Sue, I got the article easily, and now I´ll read it. The very best to you!

K.Herr on November 14, 2008

Hello Colin, great work! I am very glad about your article. It presents so many aspects of the Panoramio community and it presented Jean in a total new light to me:

Dear Jean, a new star is born! Thank you for what you have done for the Panoramio community. I also learned some new things e.g. the geology layer of GE, but much more about you. Your a professional, an artist, a painter and you never mentioned it. I agree with Sue: "you dark, dark horse, you!":-)). Where can I see paintings from you?

By the way, did you follow the suggestions from Sue :"to die your hair, wear sunnies and walk with(out) a limp..." (my dictionary fails:-)) If you did, you should take a photo and share with us!:-))

Greetings from your friend in Germany, Klaus

Wonderful article Colin, an excellent focus on what Panoramio and Google Earth represents! We are all part of a massive world, seperated by language and lines but underneath all the same!

I have seen and shared so much through Panoramios window and google earth it truly gives me hope!

Hi Colin and Jean. I've written direct to the paper, but will put on my official Panoramio congratulations to you both "for the record". Absolutely terrific article, so informative for anyone not familiar with GE and a great expose of the local lady who has put Franklin on the GE map and Panoramio. Well done. H
