    It is that time of year to reflect and give thanks, I and many others, on the now five photo communities that Amin has set up want to thank him for his vision, perseverance, patience, consistency and sense of purpose.

    Notice I used the word community……not photo site. I have forged friendships with individuals I have never met face to face. I have gained insight into the artistic vision of others across the globe. I have asked and gotten advice on things other than cameras and gear. I have found a sense of place. I sometimes feel like I am in the old TV show "Cheers" (does that show my age?).

    So…..on the eve of Thanksgiving, I would like to thank Amin and the tireless site admins for inviting me and others into their home and sharing.

    Thank you Amin.

    Thank you, Rich and Jay. I know I'm getting way too much credit from you here, Rich, I appreciate it very much. I know exactly what you mean about Cheers, and I'm so glad we've been able to create these communities. The other day, Andrew's thread about Gary was a wonderful example of what they mean to us.

    I'm very thankful to all of our members and especially to the moderators. I went through some months of personal/work issues where I couldn't spend the time to enjoy or work here, and our leading moderators and members only made this home on the web better than ever. Thank you, everyone!

    Absotively.

    The site has even improved my posture, as well.

    See, I used to sit with one hip higher than the other due to my wallet having cash and credit cards stored in it...

    Now I sit flat. Absolutely...flat.

    :biggrin:

    Seriously - this joint has meant a lot to this old man in learning new methods, technologies, and considering new opinions.

    Many thanks to all of those who spend time, treasure, and effort in keeping everything running.

    Very best regards,

    Jim

    I too tremendously enjoy this site. Especially when we can have civil dialog even when we disagree.
