Photography has been a part of my life for many years. I started with a Contax RTS 1, one year later I moved to a RTS 11 then onto the RTS 111. During the time of moving through the Contax Line I purchased a Hasselblad with two backs and three lenses. I worked mostly with black and white/monochrome. The artistic value of this medium was marvelous and it could be developed at home, which I did. I also worked with slide for color and almost always shot Kodachrome slide film. The slide film was always processed at the Kodak Lab in Halifax, and I would print and enlarge shots from the slides and also from my black and white shots.

"You cannot go wrong viewing Property#1's photos, or corresponding with Property#1 (Ron) for information regarding digital photography. Myself, a neophyte photographer, never using any camera until about 6 years ago, and then going from a point and shoot Canon to a DSLR Pentax, he has been great help to me, and a very calming influence in my panic. He has given me so much advice it will take me some time to reread and apply it all. But, what I have found so far, is that he has not led me wrong. His advice has always been "right-on", and he has been so generous with it that I cannot describe it properly. If Ron is one of your contacts, you are lucky indeed! So thanks, Ron, for your advice and common sense. A wonderful flickr friend as you will ever have....Karyn (augray)"

" I more watch every month than 20.000 photo on flickr, Property#1 has the ability to move to me and ispire me.
Animals and plants thus as they are in nature, your shots are ever interesting, your album is like a "enciclpedy"
For me Property#1 is a complete photographer, one of the best ones.
Hi Gigi, Italy, Sardegna."

"Ron is always encouraging, and even when I was a total novice, managed to find something kind to say to me to motivate me to grow! I would look at his work and wonder how he could find anything good in mine, but I think it's because, like all good artists, he can see beyond the surface, and knows that with a little watering, seeds can sprout into beautiful blooms!
Thanks, Ron, for sharing your wonderful images with us, and for helping me to have the confidence to keep trying to be better! I look forward to watching what the future holds through your eyes!"

Although I met him here in flickr not so long ago, I knew immediately this is a great photographer whom I can learn many things about photography from. I also appreciate his continuous support and encouragements on my work, drives me to continue my adventure. Please take the time to checkout his stream and you will be amazed for sure. Keep up the great photography Ron, we just can't get enough!"

Most of his comments are sincere and genuine. You are a great person Mr. Ron."

"Property#1 has been a great Flickr contact for a long time. Much better than I deserve because I have not been able to return the favor. I post a lot of poor photos worthy of being ignored, but when I do come up with a fairly decent one he is always one of the first to comment on it."
July 14th, 2008
"Ron is an amazing photographer. He is a nice friend. I admire the way he appreciates his contacts works. His comments are always motivating and it is nice to have him as a flickr friend. I am excited and inspired by visiting his photostream. I wish him more happy clicks and look forward for more of his photos on flickr.

""Property#1" is a great photographer, a great person, and a great Flickr contact. His dedication to appreciating the work of his contacts here on flickr is certainly admirable, and I have always appreciated both his thoughtful comments, and his photos."
