As one of my hobbies, I enjoy taking photographs.

Though a specific place changes with each passing moment of time, a photograph can help us capture those moments for a lifetime. These treasures can inspire, dazzle, bring joy, and ignite and rekindle our memories over and over again. The power of the captured image never fades. Indeed, it grows only stronger with time, as it is these images that preserve memories and thoughts for all of our lives.

By awakening our imaginations, photographs bring out of us the creativity that sets us apart from all other life. They allow us to dream great dreams, remember fond moments, and taste the unmistakable taste of life. By doing so, these images cease to be inanimate colors painted on film or digitized onto computer screens, but take on a special life all of their own.

A photograph--any photograph--can help enrich our lives: making them a little better, a little happier, and a little more special. When we are open to the possibilities offered by these suddenly extraordinary images, we take one more step toward living life as it was meant to be lived. Then, the photograph's real power is unlocked for our benefit and life's treasures become our great discoveries.

    "Don's photos are exceptional and beautiful! He is a talented photographer which is very obvious by his work, and his love of photography and nature shines through in his photos. In addition, I would like to say that I love the attention - (nice comments, invitations to groups, etc.) that he gives to my photos on a regular basis.

    Keep shooting those beautiful photos Don. Your work is an inspiration to amateur beginning photographers such as myself, as well as accomplished photographers too.

    "What I like about Don’s Photo-Stream is he does not edit much (if at all) his pictures when he presents it to the flickr community. He uses his photographic genius in him to convey to us what he saw by taking from angles he saw fit, all of them very nicely composed.

    Just even by looking at his Flickr20 set, you will know why he has such a huge fan base. I’m one of his fans!

    Don… keep your photos coming… we all love it!
