Don, you looked at the images of the world and like the Prophet you cried out
Please continue

Thank you, Don, for your beautiful testament to our versatile and creative imagery. We will definitely keep going.

Don, flat out wonderful, and as that word is wrought. It's fascinating how you've stitched together these images, and through your impressions of them weaved a coherent poem of drive and beauty. And it demonstrates your integrated vision, a glimpse of the pattern of your thoughts expressed through the prisms of imagery and heartfelt sympathy. Thank you. I can only hope we can continue to be invited to your feast.

Don, a photo essay without using a camera? Those words are powerful and a nice way to wrap up the March side challenge.

I enjoy going to your profile and reading your comments so many of these I have already had the pleasure of reading. I find it fascinating which images inspire you to write a some poetry. Maybe it's the photo, or maybe the moment, possibly a bit of both. Happy to see we can inspire you as you do us. Thanks

The idea of Food opened a Pandora box for me and I used new and old pics that I took as souvenirs, for years. I realized after a large number of pics that I left out the wine or digestifs and a lot of other aspects a bit less material! I am very shy in presenting pics of food since there are professionals of great ability.

i've been told not to compare .. altho its nearly impossible .. !! ..
but you say you are shy presenting your pics of food .. comparing to the professionals of great ability ..
my personal opinion is that you have to do what you love ... altho 'have to' is a bit harsh ... more along the lines that .. if you do what you love it comes from that part of you that is deep and 'real' ..
and the less we compare with others .. then hopefully we make it easier and more natural to connect to that real place and create from our own 'source' .. unique .. no other like it ..
just my take .. and also a message to myself that i should listen to .. !! ..

THANKYOU EVERYONE ..
has been great having you all taking such an interest and giving such valuable feedback ..
dont forget the month of gratitude in april ..
thats going to be a real challenge for me .. i wonder if i will be able to stop comparing ..
altho that said .. that doesnt mean we cant get inspiration from other photographers ..
but i'm rambling .. !! .. ;)

And once again I let myself down on this side challenge. My problems started when I switched to carrying my Olympus OMD EM5, which doesn't have wifi, meaning I could only submit photos from my computer. That became a bigger problem when South Africa went through a period of load shedding (scheduled power cuts of over 4 hours, sometimes twice in one day) leaving me little time to use my computer for anything. By the time that stopped, I'd fallen so far behind that I never got going again.

Although our power is stable at the moment there are fears that the problem will return.

My resolution was at least 5 photos posted...this is number 5.
I was out of town on a short trip mid-month but I managed to get it done.
This has been fun, thanks Roz.

This is the last image for this SC. Trying blending got me to lots of nonsense images but I learned a bit on the way ;)

Thanks, Roz, for starting this thread, I will probably "bend" my Gratitude to continue with learning Photoshop :)
