On I'm sorry.... in the Your Dog(s) in Black and White challenge (8 comments in total)

I didn't want to answer any of the comments before the judging was done, because I didn't want to break any rules, but now I can. I just want to say thank you all very much! No one sees my photos except for here and an upland BB where I participate (some superb photography there, BTW), so getting feedback like this really invigorates my efforts. The fact that Joy is such a pretty pup didn't hurt either. Thanks again!

Greg, Chase and Joy

On Yosemite Valley lit by Moonlight in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (18 comments in total)

Like everyone here, I've seen a bazillon pics of that scene, but this is by far the best one I've ever seen. Simply superb work - the photo, the processing - the whole thing. Thanks for sharing that image.

Thank you for your kind thoughts.

I learned photography in the Army – one of the few good things about that horrible experience. They provided a free photolab complete with instructor (Rudi – who had been a combat photographer in the German Army in WWII – interesting guy) to try to keep the young riflemen out of the bars and whorehouses when we were temporarily in from humping the bush. Since I was already married, I had no interest in that stuff anyway and took them up on their offer.

I sent all my Army photos, medals, etc, to Tricky Dick as a one-man protest against the war, so I don’t have any of that stuff and don’t miss it. The pic posted above was one of my very first “civilian” photos.

The beautiful young woman you see there is now a totally helpless, brain damaged old lady – stroke victim – to whom I still devote my life. The “person” I married is no longer there, but I am a very lucky man to have been able to share my life with her for over 40 years.
