My dear Panoramio friends, now that Pano is closing I am sadly having to say goodbye to many of you. Your constant comments have both encouraged me to take more pictures and have also given me a reason to share my work. Visiting your galleries and leaving heart-felt comments have also been a fantastic pleasure for me as well as a learning experience. Most of all I feel that I have made genuine friends on here. For that reason alone I shall bitterly miss Panoramio. As we say in this country "As one door closes, another opens" in that respect many of you will already know that I belong to some similar other photo sharing sites, which I hope to see you on too. To Google Panoramio -a big Thank You for being the first and greatest for me!
