are these the "Early Birds that Got the Worm to Catch the Catch" ?!? ;-)

Dear Bartowian, Panoramio is at it again, for I have just received posts you made almost a month ago. As for the fishermen - my grandson and son-in-law - disappointingly they didn't catch even worms that morning. A week later they went to Fraser Island and made a haul for the freezers. I'd rather photograph then stand uselessly holding on to a bit of nylon dangled into an ocean. Ian

he! having spawned the working class and holding on to the freezer key -- you've got it made, mate! I love the idea of life in Australia -- like Texas, just bigger! :-)

I like that picture a lot, and have taken it with my favourites, thanks!

Dear Juan Jose,

I am sorry I missed seeing this comment a week ago,.. But let me say how much I appreciate your affirmation of this photo in particular and my gallery in general!!

Your remarkable recent sets of photos have taken time for me to digest. I really want to write you a long letter or lots of comment. But the short of it is that, I believe that both the AAAGGGG!!!! set and the more recent floral colour macro set of iris, petunia, lily and pansy together should be hung in an exhibition in the same room! I would want the world to see your remarkable way of seeing and your artistry, but especially the social commentary that the two sets make.

I must go to bed, and prepare for a busy week ahaead, but I will comment on your photos rather than on this one of mine.

The two most stunning images for me are:

  1. the last of the AAAGGGG!!!! set depicting the single transplanted palm;

  2. the blue Iris.

So in the meantime, thankyou for your visit and acceptance of my humble work, and know that I have appreciated your work and also your art website. You are a gifted artist!

Dear Ian, I'm still schocked by your generous loving exagerated magnificnet lovely words about my pictures. I'm just a guy (an older one, actually) who enjoys "the image" and its posibilities. You know so much about it: the magnificent beauty of your blue/yellow dune, the tic/tac tenderness of your mother's rain gauge... I'm more than flattered by your words, i'm just a painter who relaxes himself looking his world around. Thanks again, a big thanks, and... always Juan José
