My apologies to all who sent congratulations and comments while I was away. Please accept my belated thanks!

And Tjeert and Renifer, I appreciate your comments--both for themselves and because they made me notice that I had failed to reply to earlier comments!! Greetings from Guelph, Ontario, Canada.

blue and white, a very nice composition, it's perfect !!!greetings from Elisabeth

Thank you, Elisabeth. I had seen this church from another angle but I couldn't get a good photo because people were in the way. I was delighted to discover this angle from a cafe while we waited for our coffee! Greetings, Marilyn

Already over 1'500 views and I didn't see this pic yet! It exactly complies the pictorially image one have of Santorini. Great composition.

Panoramio has no time limits, poly... I'm glad you found it now. Yes, it's the essence of Santorini, and I'm lucky that I found such a good spot from which to take the photo.

...Poly... I'm glad you found it...

I've been thinking how useful it would be to start a "Other Interesting Photo Sites" thread in a/the forum. Just yesterday I found one again "TraumFlieger" (DreamPilot), apparently started/run by a "nearby neighbor" (who --too late-- indicated he would welcome meeting visitors to his site for a joint photo shoot at the annual "Hot Air Festival & Competions" taking place - not Albuquerque but 'the next best thing'...

hi marilyn! how are you doing these days? i came back to check up on that contest i'd started and am disappointed to still see litter on that beautiful roof :( but very happy that you won the april contest anyway :) cheers, brian

Marilyn Whiteley on October 11, 2008

Thank you, Marek, for your comment and golden star.

Brian, I'm so glad to hear from you, and I look forward to seeing more from you, too! Sorry about the roof, but the clean-up crew still hasn't come by!

As for me, I'm still around, still taking pictures, and expecting to become a grandmother soon. Cheers, Marilyn

congrats to the soon-to-be grandmother! how long since you last had a chance to change a diaper, or burp a baby? ;) i am sure that that baby will have a great photo album courtesy of his/her grandmom!

oh, i have about 3000+ photos to go thru from the past summer of traveling around my favorite place - the american southwest! i recall that you went there recently, as well as south america.

cheers, brian

Marilyn Whiteley on October 11, 2008

It's been a long time ... and now I'll have to learn to use modern, high-tech diapers!

Both of our sons and our other daughter-in-law are very good photographers. The baby's mother says they won't take the baby to a professional photographer. She'll have a family contest!

Working though those photos should keep you busy and out of trouble! Yes, I also love the southwestern U.S.

Cheers, Marilyn

high-tech diapers? they come with a built-in cellphone/holder for baby's first call and text message? ;)
