Hi,Sue.Your picture is impressive.

I find that you are so active.It seems that you have a tongue in your head!Are you an Australian?

You can have a look at my pictures if you like.They were taken in my hometown,Beijing.Maybe they are not good enough,but I'm still glad to share them with you.

And looking forward to seeing more pictures taken by you.

Greetings from Beijing,China.

Jazz, FlinstoneRO, capicua, Jean, Jasmine and Sandy, Thank you so much for all your kind words! I'm so sorry I'm very slack doing my replies on here lately, I keep just running out of energy and getting rather down at how far behind I am. I keep writing poems instead of catching up!

jasmine, I am an aussie, although born in England, so more blue blood than most Aussies. tee hee hee.

Sandy, I have written a poem and put it on the other picture, as the raindrops are bigger on that one. This is especially for your request

Thank you all once again, I really do appreciate your lovely messages. I cannot promise to be more reliable with my replies just yet though. I am just so hit and miss with everything I do...:(

My very best wishes to you all,

Imagine this.......You are out for an afternoon stroll. The weather turns nasty, threatening clouds and heavy rain.

Suddenly; the heavens open, monsoon like rain cascades from the sky, You run for cover in the hope of escaping the torrent and there in the corner of your eye you see something strange. You look again in amazement, in disbelief.

No, it is not a figment of your imagination, it is some zany woman replete with brolly and camera in hand merrily snapping away!!

You walk away knowing that you are normal and there are some things in life that have no logic or explanation !!

Ah well----- ;>)))

Now Jim...this sounds like the perfect afternoon for a crazy photographer...but you forgot to mention Sue's leg thrown up over the edge of the pool to keep her balance...shoe becoming soaked in the water..her staying very still to allow the water to become calm again to get her beautiful shot...definately an artist at work :)

Very stylish and pictorial photo, Susan. To flash a moment in eternal memories is the real art - I'm really impressed by the drops :-)

Well done, Michael
