What a beautiful set, Ian. And I do believe you're having a wonderful time exploring the new possibilities! Marilyn

Ian Stehbens on February 26, 2008

I am, Marilyn! But I'm not confident yet, for I see a recurring pattern in my compositions. I guess I'll be more courageous after a while. You may receive this as a gift of appreciation for your Panoramio friendship.


Marilyn Whiteley on February 26, 2008

I thank you, Ian.

Is there anything wrong with finding a "recurring pattern"?

A true offer of love indeed. Such a perfect photo of this perfect flower


Gay Lohse on February 27, 2008

All great shots but this is my special favourite. Thankyou Ian.

I want to admire with this flower infinitely long and I give YS for this perfect azalea, Yan. Best wishes. Eva

An offering of love - to any who would receive it!

Dear Marilyn, Thanks again, and in reply to your query, I think it is like life. Good patterns are excellent when it is the result of mastery or experience, but in learning something new one discovers that some choices shut down. One of my Panoramio macro-teachers, Juan Jose Romero, demonstrates a creativity with cropping/composition that I have labelled 'daring'. He has encouraged me to be daring which will put punch into some images. When we work this idea out, together, it becomes another chapter for a co-authored book.

Thankyou Gay. I saw your WOW on the feather, and that surprised me, for I was expecting you, you especially, to WOW a flower! So I am no longer surprised for you are always generous with your affirmations and joys.

Oh Eva! A YS for this azalea bud! Thankyou, Thankyou. Can you print it and add it to your album? It comes from Australia to Ukraine by Internetflora for you so that you can enjoy its beauty for a very long time.

Dear Yan! I will save for a long time appearance of this flower and your kind attitude toward me. Best greetings, Eva
