New Zealand Trip

Wow!! It looks like i am going to be able to fulfill a long held wish to see the beautiful country of New Zealand in March of this year. Happy New Year! I have seen such beautiful images of NZ and hope to see and maybe capture at least some of the beautiful scenery there. For those of you who live there or are familiar with NZ, I would love to know the great places to visit, especially the little known places. My travel partner has been there and loves it and would love to show him something off the beaten track. I am so excited, so please let me know the “must see” places as well as the hidden treasures. Thanks so much!

Metal Print Sale

Thank you to the person who purchased a metal print of Last Light. Have been thinking of going through and deleting old image that haven’t beneficed for sometime. This one hasn’t been noticed for several years but still sold! Looking at it, I think it will make a great metal image!

Responding to Comments

Is anyone else having trouble seeing and responding to comments received? The comments show up on my activity page but when I open the image, there are no new comments. Activity here is getting less and less and, if we can’t even respond to the comments we receive, I fear it will be further decreased. This site I loved is becoming a foreign place lately.

xcarguy

Some of you may remember xcarguy. He was funny and posted some great images after I encouraged him to do so. He took my old camera and tried his hand at photography in order to share my passion. He hasn’t posted for some time as he has been ill. He passed away this week, the reason I have not been here very much. He was my partner, soulmate and best friend. I miss him so much and wanted people who enjoyed his humor and his work to know.

A Wonderful Honor

I recently was contacted by an art agency and sold the license to print 75 images of Tahoe Abstract to be displayed in the rooms of a hotel being built in Phoenix, Arizona. Very exciting.

Observations

Sad, but participation is down on RB. Fewer comments, less participation in groups. I have seen it in my own works and in my groups. There are numerous reasons for this which I won’t go into at this time. However, the reaction of many people is to become more regimented, you must participate in group forums, you must vote in the challenges, you must let us know you voted or that you will be away, and so forth. For me, this only adds to the problem. I, for one, dislike regimentation and being told what I have to do to remain a member of the group. I cannot remember (maybe old age) what every group requires and have made the decision, to avoid frustration that I certainly don’t need, to resign from groups that become too regimented and that have too many extraneous rules.…
