El pueblo unido jamás será vencido.

Steve's suggestions on how to leave a good comment...
  1. Tell the artist what caught your eye, something your particularly liked or didn't like.
  2. Tell the artist something you think they could have done differently or better.
  3. Suggest an alternate title; it tells the artist what you saw in the image.
  4. Interact with the artwork, continue its story.
  5. Ask the artist how or why they did something.
  6. If nothing else, even "Ooh, pretty!" or "Oh, ick!" is a lot more information than no comment at all.

FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?

Because it's past time for white-haired white men to stand up and say it.

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, let me not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Out on the bike for the first time this season. Ooph. This is my "just rode several miles and have rubber legs" face.

There's an awful lot of history in my gallery and comments.
Scanned four 120 rolls today, three from the Yashica-D and one from the Brownie Reflex 20, all from March. I have not had the energy for serious photography so far in April. Now that I have caught up with the scanning, let's see if I can get something posted.
Too much family drama next door. I'm exhausted.
Hey. I appear to be retired. So far, so good.

Thankyou very much for the two favourites and your wonderful comments that I will of course reply to. I like what you say in your journal and your pretty lake shots.. so welcome to my watch list. ;)

Rachel the belle,
You're welcome. And I had fun taking the photgraphs. I barely consider myself a "real" photgrapher as I take the camera along when I go places instead of going places to take pictures.
Rachabelle Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2005  Hobbyist Photographer
I don't consider myself a photographer or a 'real' photographer either. I am an observer. I take photos when I feel like it. ;)

Likewise. Thanks for the intensely beautiful and thought-provoking art to keep me thinking.

Thank you for your very nice comment on It's Eating Away At Her. It made my evening. :3 And you were in Alaska for a few years? I'm surprised you made it back to the East Coast! (Most people come here on military tours, and end up not leaving. Happened to my parents, heh.)
pearwood Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2005  Hobbyist Photographer
My wife and I used to say that if you gave us an hour to pack to go back we'd have 45 minutes to spare. Three kids later, it would take a tad bit longer. But there's beauty to be found everywhere. (Though I really do miss flying the Alaska railroad route through the Tanana River valley. I'll have to scan some of my old photographs.)
