Dave's photos are simply incredible. Just about every one looks as if it belongs on a postcard or in a magazine. I admire and envy his skill, and I find myself favoriting his photos quite often. :) His skill is amazing. :)

August 10, 2007

I think I fave every one of Dave's photos! I love them all! He is one of the kindest Flickr folks I know and the very first to write a testimonial about me... without me even asking! What a guy! If I ever cross the pond, I shall be happy to shake his hand!

June 10, 2007

Im blessed every time I visit Daves stream for many reasons and two of them are... One: He always has such beautiful wonderful photos to view that inspire me to be a better photographer...and Two: He is always encouraging through his words and is willing and open to be used by the Lord in what he says!

Emptybelly/EB/Dave. What can I say that hasn’t already been said about him? This is who he is & what he means to me. 1st off I have to say he was given the correct name at birth, Dave/David means Beloved. He truly is true to his name. He NEVER has a bad word to say about anyone, he is a terrific friend, who’s always there for me if I need him, even in times of his own grief & trials. He has a fantastic sense of humour/fun/mischievousness & can also be a tease at times ~ dare say he’ll do his damndest to deny that though lol. He is kind, thoughtful, selfless & dedicated in all he does, always comes up trumps with his words of wisdom ~ he won’t let on who he gets them from :p ~ He is compassionate, caring, polite, a genuine gentleman. He’s there with a hug, comforting words, a kick up the behind & prick of conscience, when needed. Oh & Dave is also one of THE very best photographers! When I view his photographs I feel them come to life, like I am there! He is also by his own admission a grumpy auld git at times & has a bottomless pit for a stomach, hence the name lol Dave also shows a great zest for life, for the simple things we might otherwise miss if it weren’t for his photographs, he hardly asks for anything from anyone, I have often asked myself is he actually human??? Cos to me he is almost celestial. Dave, I love you, for being such a great friend, for sharing the beauty of the world around us through your photos, for being there. For just being YOU! Huge kudos & respect to you sent with loads of ((((((Hugs)))))) & kisses xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx P.S Ya can send the cheque whenever ya ready :p *Legs it*

Dave, Emptybelly, Mate, Friend. When I think of Dave it always happens in a very happy mood. He has a touching way of being nice to others, helpful, kind and extremely friendly. A good soul...not easy to find. Getting to know Dave is quite an experience. He posts great and funny images sometimes, making you laugh a lot, feeling like a child again. And this is so nice and feels really good. On the other hand, he leaves us deep and thoughtful messages, matching to the most amazing and beautiful photographs. Dave´s comments are generous and kind. Just great to get and wonderful to read. Spending some time on Dave´s photostream is delightful. Just check-it-out. You´ll have a great time here, believe me.

His calling is to search for wisdom and for ethical knowledge. And in this respect he reminds me Socrates... He reminds me this legendary ancient sage in an other aspect as well... Mr Emptybelly mostly follows "Socratic Method" of concealing grand matters of life and death behind the joke... Yes, he stares this life through the Golden eye-glasses of fun! And that is rare gift! Well, and that is CHARISMA! His charismatic personality sparkles through his cheerful, inspiring, incredibly thought provoking and deep captions... It shines through his wonderful photos! He is attentive, well-mannered, generous, kind and supportive... He simply makes me laugh and smile a lot! As well he makes me thinking... Really, a SUNny Spirit!
