    Dear Malgorzata,

    The photo and the subject are beautiful. But, I am most grateful to have the quote from Victor Hugo, "Dear God! How beauty varies in nature and art. In a woman the flesh must be like marble; in a statue, the marble must be like flesh. I may be able to integrate it into my new book,

    Warm regards,

    Witaj Krzysztof.

    You captured the diver/jumper in midair, the others oblivious to his acrobatics. Now here is an In flight shot from the other side of the globe from two years ago.

    Hello Ike,

    You chose an ideal vantage position to shoot the elk/moose. It's a symmetric architectural point of view, one that this animal sees daily. The museum's display includes an Egyptian statue, the jaw of whale, and an eclectic mix.

    Nicolas, mon ami,

    This is a genuinely beautiful winter shot, with a dusting of snow covering the ground and shrubbery. Among the trees, the poplar stands out tying in the dark colors of the trees and the white of the snow.

    Hello Gert,

    Indeed, Ganesha would be my choice of gods, especially since I've always felt a bit leery of the only other Hindu god that I would consider the multi-armed Sheva. Thank God, I don't have a choice. I am a theoretical physicist through and though. Was the statue for sale or just the garlands?

    Enjoy what's left of Sunday.

    Hello Kasia,

    This photo came up in the random order you've selected for your photos on your profile page. Shot in 2010, posted in 2013 and a welcome addition to my gallery of "favorites" in 2016. "White Wedding" or "White on White," by any other name is still a rose. I fear, if I am not more selective, I could fill my entire allowance of favorites with photos you've taken. If you get a chance, take a look at some of my earlier selection of favorites. There are some beauties by Trekkies who appeared and disappeared, like this one: "World of Tomorrow."

    Hello Wolfgang,

    It's a wonderful shot, with you woman approaching from the rear. I have fond memories of wandering around Copacabana Beach, site of our hotel, the Arena Nacional, from 11 months ago. This particular vendor I do not remember seeing, but scores of others I do remember. I also remember a man approaching me and telling me to hide my watch, "They'll kill you for that watch."

    Hello Erling,

    This is a lovely shot from the shores near Bergen. The surface of the water is as mirror-like as I can imagine. I hope that if I visit your beautiful city again (the last time was in 2010), I will get to meet you in person.

    Hello Benny,

    This is the type of photo from Athens I also like very much. You captured the guards in their traditional outfits against the white marble walls. Your note is highly informative. I see that they have civilized hours to stand guard, and not eight hours at a time, every day of the week.

    Warm regards,
