Hello Christine! Thank you so much for taking the photos of Richard as he went about doing what he loves best. It was unfortunate that I couldn't come, although the reason was a good one....our daughter is expecting our first grandchild and there was a shower for New Jersey. I was to fly out later, but our Ballet Company has an opportunity to have a free four-minute video made, and guess who has to write the script! next time. I appreciate your immortalizing this experience, and I know Richard is thrilled you were there to capture his efforts so we can all relive them. Very best wishes...Holley Calmes

Hi Christine,

In answer to your question, the waverunner rider planned to do a barrel roll, but the machine had other ideas. He fell off and the machine landed on top of him. No severe injuries, but a bruised ego was reported! When performing in front of a million people, an ego can bruise easily.

Hi Christine,

Thanks so much for checking out my site again, I appreciate your kind words. The image of the Rott was taken by a friend and I tweeked it in PhotoShop. I placed it in my gallery so she could view it. I check out galleries now and then to look for updates. I hope all is well with you and yours...stay safe, keep shooting and be happy.

I’ve very much enjoyed touring your wonderful galleries. Thank you for your thoughtful comments on my petals gallery—by far the most perspicacious I’ve received! You aptly describe why flower petals are so enticing and so enjoyable to photograph. I’m happy the images conveyed those impressions to you, and most of all left you smiling!

Hi Chris,
Came to your lovely galleries by clicking on a nice comment you left on a Mary Bell SP. I like to explore Pbase this way by following a chain.
You have many fine images and writings and I'll need more time to explore so I'm earmarking you in my faves.
Best for now, will be back soon,

You write -

At heart, sadly, I am a person of little mystery, friendly
as a puppy (and sometimes, perhaps, just as annoying..grin..
with my exuberance. I do not, however, chew up slippers :)))

- which raises the question, "So, what DO you chew up???"

(Sorry, my world-view is slightly askew, and as Oscar Wilde, I think it was, said, more or less, "There are great temptations in the World that only can be given into with the strongest of will-power.")

You have a lot of great photos and your comments to them are very touching. I really enjoyed all of them. Wish you all the best.

Hello Christine,

Thank you so much for your heartfelt comments, your sincerity is very much appreciated. I did read your previous posts regarding a few of my images and galleries...and I have re-visited your galleries several times since, looking for new images and just taking the time to appreciate the ones that I saw before. I can sit for hours and try to imagine your thoughts while shooting many of these images. You truly have a very gentle touch in your photography...and a wonderful vision. I shall continue to watch for additions, especially for do excellant work capturing yourself!

Happy Holidays to you and yours...stay safe, happy and loved.

Cristine Varney16-Dec-2005 21:02
rbfresno....Your comments please me so much. To me, when I am looking at any image,
it is always the emotional appeal or the thoughts created, by which I decide how much
I admire what I'm seeing.

Rules are excellent guidelines...but to always stay within the lines is boring...
and truth to tell..impossible for me. I still have so much to learn and discover technically.

Another explanation for those technically marginal pics (I love that description by the way :))), is my impetuous nature, and my attraction to the runt of the litter. Many times, after downloading a batch of pics, I will pic the least promising one, to see
what I can do with it..meanwhile leaving its more perfect siblings to wait..

Cheers and many smiles ! Thank you for the interesting thoughts.. I will treasure
them :))
rbfresno16-Dec-2005 18:33
It's a little difficult for me to put my finger on it, but I find your work extremely appealing! Very rich and expressive. Many great images, yet you're not above showing a technically marginal picture that nevertheless has something to convey. Really terrific collection!

Hi Christine, You have alot of talent and imagination which I really enjoy. Your courage to experiment is awsome. I enjoy your galleries and will return often to view your work. You mentioned PS7 which is plenty of power to do an infanet aray of art. I am no means an expert on photoshop but love explaining how I do stuff, so if there are any questions please ask. I mailnly play with it and teach my self things on a daily basis. I believe that you will no doubt do well because you already have an excellent start.
Great Work Christine!!!

How delighted i am that you had the opportunity to view my stuff :)). I posted a photo at my critique site of Sam, and titled the picture..It's a good day for Sam.. and described his "graduation day" and the treat bags... He would be very pleased with all of the positive remarks about him, from all over the world. I will post it in my Faces in just a few minutes. Hugs and Smiles my dear, new Friend. See you Monday something that tickles your heart :)))

Cristine, I really enjoyed your photo's, especially the ones of sunsets. There is one called "from my back yard" I think, that was my very favorite! I'm glad you have such a positive attitude and I'm sure you will do amazingly well with your treatment. God is watching over you!
