    What a beautiful image – and reading your blog makes me nostalgic for my old Nikon F2 (cast aside long ago).

      HI Kirstyfliesfree–what a great name! So nice of you to visit my casa. Ahh an old Nikon F2 devotee…cast aside but clearly not forgotten. Hmm. If there’s film there’s fun to be had with a reunion.

    Beautiful photo, the colours are so vibrant. I don’t always believe you need new up to date technology to take great photos. The photography should be credited for that and you’ve definitely done a wonderful job. I personally love playing with old film cameras.

    • April 12, 2010 at 9:11 pm

      oOO and which ones do you enjoy playing with, oh ambiguous one????? Enquiring minds would enjoy knowing.

  8. March 29, 2010 at 8:52 pm

    Sweet, some things are just for looking at.

    • April 3, 2010 at 8:08 pm

      Very true, Jelly. Very true. Or for ‘watching’–like that great mask on your site!

      • April 12, 2010 at 9:13 pm

        O thank you, otto. So nice of you to visit. Feel free to sharpie here anytime.

    • April 12, 2010 at 9:14 pm

      Colors Colors Everywhere!—OH yeah, Carol–now you know why I adore those watercolors soooo much.

    This is beautiful. Love, love, love the color. Keep doing what you do- if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!

    • April 12, 2010 at 9:20 pm

      LOL–thanks whiteswan–I like your words–if it ain’t broke….Excellent point! Grins and wings.

    Hi. Glad everyone appreciates this photograph taken with an old Minolta x700. I know digital is The Thing, but for now I’ll stick with quality I can afford instead of succumbing to the lure of a brand new camera.

    I knew I’d seen this before. You know, that’s kind of cool because I heard a teacher say that to create something memorable is important. You have. Beautiful.

    This image is fantastic, lovely textures and colours and very clean and clear water. Good!

    • April 12, 2010 at 9:21 pm

      Merci, Echostains. I shall have to check out your casa soon to see what you’ve been ‘staining’.

    This is so beautiful. The creek looks so clear and cold, but the leaves warm colors softens it, makes it complete.

    Wow! Love the color and texture.

    • April 12, 2010 at 9:22 pm

      No ‘dust’ in Line Creek for this one. Hey, how goes The Master and Margarita?
