    "This man can quote Shakespeare and shovel snow all in one leap. I have had admiration for him for quite some time now. I first met him through other comments he left for his other contacts.

    I was always impressed with how much effort, ease and eloquence he used to not only describe the art he was looking at, but, uplifting the artist as well.

    The first time I was a recipient of all I described, I knew what it felt like to be on the receiving end. And it was good. =)

    The best part on his words are the sincerity he has.

    His talent with the camera is an entirely new topic of compliments we could go on and on about...which I am sure he'd let us. =) He does have a sense of that tool called a camera. But, it's what he does with his eyes through that lens that captures our hearts."

    "Jim was one of my first Flickr contacts, oh-so-long ago. I *think* he might have even been the first person to comment on one of my photos. He was so supportive, so complimentary and such a wonderful introduction to the wonderful universe that is Flickr. His work is mind-blowing, and his kind, gentle spirit is irresistible. I heart you, Jim! XOXO."

    "I cannot quite remember how I found my way to Jim's stream. Somehow clicking along through the flickrverse I came across this kind and thoughtful person who I now consider a friend. His images are evocative and his warm personality shines through in each one. His images, whether they are of his beautiful and expressive children or of a lovely landscape captured on one of his trips, draw out true and raw emotion. I often find myself coming back to his pictures over and over again.

    Jim, thank you for sharing these gems with us and thank you also for your encouragement and support. As others have said before, meeting people like you is the reason why I love this place."

    A sensitive and kind soul, Jim's comments are always thoughtful and sincere. As a friend, he is supportive, appreciative and encouraging. I have to say, that Jim's friendship has inspired me to be a better person.

    As a photographer, his compositions are often clever and unique, and his goodness always shows through in his photography - photography that has a lot of heart.

    "Jim's stream is one of my favorite places on flickr. As you spend time with his images, you realize that the qualities that make his work unique are also what make him such a special member of this community. He is honest, genuine, and sincere. He captures everyday moments with a vision and spirit like no other. He has a way of seeing places and happenings that most of us would simply pass by, and then bringing them to life. Jim's work has true soul.

    This passion is not limited to his own work. he brings this vision with him when he visits with others as well. Jim is so generous with his time and comments. He has helped me see elements of my own work that previously eluded me. In a place such as this, where it easy to pass in and out quickly and then move on, Jim does not. I truly appreciate his sentiments, because I know that they come from the heart. Flickr is a better place with him here."

    "I've been viewing Jim's stream for quite some time, and I love how REAL it is. Besides it's genuine quality, he always has the right things to say about everybody's images, and it always rings true and honest. It's never a quick, "great!", he digs into every image and brings the words forward in the best of ways. Solid."

    "Jim... mi querido Jim!

    Alguien que ha demostrado ser una magnífica persona, que simpre es de los primeros en comentar mis fotos, siempre son sus agradables palabras, y siempre me arranca una sonrisa=)

    Qué decir de sus fotografías, se nota que lo suyo són las nocturnas, sus fotos de noche y con luces són sus preferidas, aunque también siente gran debiidad por sus 2 pequeños, que son una monada.

    Un brazo enorme, mi friend =)

    "Jim was one of the first people I stumbled across on Flickr. He is exceptional at discovering and capturing moments that reveal a great deal about the people he sees, the physical setting he finds himself in, and the mood at the instant he saw it. He is not only a wonderful photographer, he is also among the more decent person I have met -- he carefully and critically looks at other people's photographs, often finding elements that the original photographer hadn't noticed. His encouragement and attention to detail is without parallel. I am grateful to be numbered among his contacts."

    "Like most of the flickr friends i've met here, i met Jim through an exchange of commentary, but unlike most people, his observation and expressive skill set him apart. He's more sensitive. He doesn't pass on and make 'fastfood' comment, he does look and often 'felt' the image. His photos and informative descriptions leads you into how he sees his world -- clever, full of character, and entertaining. Definately a wonderful flickr friend to have."

    ""The unique personality which is the real life in me, I cannot gain unless I search for the real life, the spiritual quality, in others. I am myself spiritually dead unless I reach out to the fine quality dormant in others..." - Felix Adler

    A quote that's hanging in my kitchen, one that I found beautiful and thought provoking, has seemed to find its redeeming reflection in a person who I am proud to call a friend. I cannot think of a better person than Jim who the words above describe. He finds beauty and depth in people, elements, and in nature, reads between the lines, and brings out the best in people through his words and his kind spirit. Humble and honest, Jim's positive outlook and appreciation of life's little treasures are evident in both his photographs as well as his words."
