[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It's been a while, my friends, and I haven't got a new camera, yet...and so I dig into my archives, yet again.
Updates from the family, my sis Caroline remains critically stable, albeit weaker slightly.
I hope to buy a camera soon.If someone has an older camera with a few lenses, that you'd be willing to sell, please do let me know, 'coz since I've gotten into photography, my camera has virtually been an extension of me, so I feel quite handicapped since I broke this last one. That, and the fact that a lot of the family's resources are going to my sister's medical care, leaves me with the choice of only buying a nice used camera, and I know no one who is selling the same.
I'd really appreciate it if someone here has something to sell.
Please do also let me know if any friend/family of yours wants to sell his/her used camera.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Goldy,
This is very nice composition my friend,great sharpness and beautiful colors.TFS.

Ciao Goldy. A tender taken with intrigant light and graphic effects. Very good colours saturation. Special wild environment.


Hi Goldy,

The point of view is showing the details and colors of the elephant and of the samll elephant. The tall grass is framing well the animals. The afternoon light has a good effect on the colors. have a nice day.

Hello Goldy,
Nice to see you posting again!
This is a fine shot of a a baby and its mother Elephant, your old faithful camera serving you well to give this high quality shot. I like the 'wooden' frame too.
I hope you get a new camera soon: you are sure to make good use of it.
Thanks and best wishes to you and Caroline,

Bonjour Goldy,
Contente de revoir une de tes images. Et plaisir de revoir une photo de la série des éléphants qui nous restera en mémoire.
Adorable petit éléphant qui précède sa mère pour explorer le monde.
J'espère de tout coeur que tu trouveras un appareil photo qui te convienne.

Hello Goldy,
Nice to see a photo from you again. Good moment you took here. Excellent sharpness, details and fine contrasting colours. The space on the left side is a bit tiny. But a very beautiful photo.

Hello Goldy,
nice to see a new picture from you, of course a wonderful image of Elephants, very good sharpness and splendid natural colours, a very pleasant composition in a very beautiful environment.
I wish you and your sister Croline all the best.

Hello Goldy,
Simply wonderful image from your favourite place and with your favourite subject. The quality of the image is only surpassed by the scene you have captured My Friend.

Hello Goldy
nice to see you again, my brother.
you presented today a great shot of a mother and baby Elaphus maximus. nicely captured and composed. thanks for sharing. all the best to you and Caroline

Hello Goldy! Good to see you my friend! That's a great capture, well composed, sharp and well presented. Thanks! I did a workshop just for the fun.


Hi Goldy
It's wonderful to see you posting again. My thoughts are with you and your sister Caroline, I wish her well. This image of a mother Asian Elephant with her baby is adorable. The mother sure looks thin, maybe it's because she was carrying her baby for so long. A lovely portrait overall Goldy.

Hi Dear Brother,

It is sooooo good to see your wonderful elephants again. This shot of the parent and child is just wonderful. You captured them perfectly as they walk along in the grass. I love the views of their tails!! I was hoping that when you returned to TN you would have some good news about your sister. My thoughts and good wishes have been with her and always will be.


Hi Goldy,
beautiful atmosphere of fresh growth, looks like the elephant mother and its baby strolling through a paradise garden. Thank you!
With best regards,
