FLICKR is changing my life. I get up daily with anticipation and excitement to see what my contacts are looking at. I plan carefully to make sure I have time before going to work to find something new to "see" with my full attention. I see everything I do including the dirty dishes with a new eye. How can I adequately express my thanks to all of you for thoughtful comments and great pictures.

 

About me:

 

I am an outdoors type who feels married to Mother Nature and is fascinated by her many moods. I love digital photography as a means of 'capturing' moments that have meaning for me, and often write words and journals to describe my thoughts about what I see.

The above map shows you I've done a fair amount of traveling in my life. I'm originally from the Netherlands, and immigrated to America with my parents after a 4 year stay in Canada in 1956.

Travel has enriched my life and made me more content with where I am and how fortunate I am to be here.

Wonderful photos; your work (what I've seen so far) is fantastic: not only do you capture the world's beauty where you see it and do it photographic justice, but you also have an eye for the little things that most people might not even recognize as interesting subjects - let alone deem worthy of a photo.

Wonderful photos; your work (what I've seen so far) is fantastic: not only do you capture the world's beauty where you see it and do it photographic justice, but you also have an eye for the little things that most people might not even recognize as interesting subjects - let alone deem worthy of a photo. And through your excellent shot composition even the least spectacular objects are transformed into art! Simply inspiring!

Peter has some of the most lovely, extravagant and stunning pictures to be found on Flickr. I enjoy looking through his pictures and can't get enough of his creativity.

His photostream is like a cable T.V. channel - through which I enjoy vicarious adventures in the wilderness or the city ... learning about human cultures and natural history. - And then he's liable to get all ARTISTIC on us too! : D

Pictoscribe's photos never cease to stun and to captivate me. He has the extroardinary ability to see and to capture remarkable photographs in the most mundane of places that others would not think to examine. And, his descriptions often reveal the true mark of a poet, and provide us with much more insight than the typical caption. Thank you for sharing with us Pictoscribe.

Pictoscribe takes photos of the things I drive past thinking, "I should take a photo of that sometime." He sees the beauty and magic in things transient, like ice crystals and seemingly eternal, like rock formations. Looking at his pictures of North Central Washington is the next best thing to seeing his subjects in person. He brings joy to my day.

I have seen the beauty and complexity of nature through pictoscribes images. He sees the world in an interesting way, and shares it with us all.

Too often, when people take photos of something extraordinary it becomes ordinary. Pictoscribe has the amazing ability to photograph something extraordinary and make it spectacular.

Pictoscribe loves the outdoors and brings that love back with him to flickr in his fine photos. He likes the patterns seen in wood grain, drying mud and rocks, something that we have very much in common. And now he has taken to making rock piles, something that I have also enjoyed.
