Hi Walter. Just wanted to say thanks for responding to my question in the forms (about single images in root galleries). Thanks even more for giving me the excuse to visit your wonderful collection of galleries! Many great images that attest to your talents and adventures!!

RE your comment on composition in the Art in the Kitchen competition--I thought your triangular crop, or frame, or whatever, contributed in some way to make it seem more military formation than egg-carton. And thanks for your encouragement re: future contests. JM

Hi Walter
I see you have the Nikon D850.I know its probably early days yet but how do you find it. I have looked at it in store and it sounds impressive. I would be coming from my trusty D800 so I am sure there is quite an improvement. Its not the camera or the finances that bother me but all the knock on effects with my software.

Looking on your gallery to see if you captured the 16 second fireworks display that's been a highlight of our news here.
That was a huge oops!

Guest 06-Jan-2011 03:13
Hi Walter,
I'm impressed with your work and the ultra high quality of your images.
If I may offer a suggestion about viewing the images. When I see a thumbnail I like, I click on it to view the larger image, BUT, the ones I've clicked don't show up until I scroll down a ways. Frankly, I find that annoying. I try to arrange the first image in a gallery to be the title image. Then it is always the first one after opening the gallery.
Guest 28-Nov-2010 08:57
Not, not, not. That is the word that goes in front of "insulted" in my comment to you Walter. Sorry about that.
Guest 28-Nov-2010 08:53
I hope you were insulted with my comments on your Midway photo. You did a great job. I only wanted it to be better for the viewer. I didn't know you were a profession photographer. I did flew the photo Crusader my first two cruises on the Coral Sea and Ticonderoga. I also spent four months learning the photo business in Photo B School in Pensacola while flying the F9F-Photo Bird. Had to learn photography from the ground up. We loaded our own film and carried it out to the plane. A photo learned to appreciate how the image got on the film for use by the intelligence team. I have a little feel for your job and know that learning it didn't come easy. I thank you for what you have done for those who will use your Midway photo to show their family what Daddy did in the Navy. Thanks for the outstanding job. By the way, my first squardron VFP-63 at Miramar had the F-8, F-9, A-3 and SNB photo planes when I got there in April of 1959 plus 3 F9F-8Ts. We had over 50 officers and pilots at that time. After my first shore duty in the Pentagon, I came back to fly the F-8 fighters in VF-211, VF-124 and VF-24. I was playing softball in a ship's tournament when Saigon fell. All fighters and excess squadrons were off loaded in the Cubi Point while the Hancock came back with over 5,000 VN survivors which I had the honor of helping get on Air Force planes back to the US within 5 to 6 hours of processing at Grande Island in Subic Bay. These are days I shall never forget. What do I tell my grandchildren when they ask me "And what did you do in the war Grandpa?"

Hello Walter, thanks a lot for your idea for the July challenge about the Beatle-songs, I was not a great fan before but now after hearing so many beautiful songs I begin to understand my husband (he past away 4 years ago and je was a big big Beatle fan), kind regards, Rosemarie :o)

Hi Walter
Thank you for the vote on my cat "Babie".
She had an operation on her thyroid glands a few months ago. She doesn't seem quite herself any more, as if the operation has turned her into an old girl. She does like her cuddles though. I'm hoping that she will come to life a little bit more when she can sit outside in the sunshine.
Liebe Gruesse

Walter, I publish a monthly newsletter for our non-profit club of model builders here in Victoria (~50 members). I wish to use in this month's issue (The Binnacle) a couple of your shots of the B-39 with proper credit to you. The article is about the B-39 and it's history by a club member.
Thanks, Bill.

I see that you have surpassed the one million hits on your Pbase site ..... Sorry I'm a little late.

That's quite a milestone! I'm sure that you will reach the two million mark much sooner with all of the rich creative things that you do. You are certainly an inspiration and a gifted photographic artist!

Congratulations and thanks for sharing you terrific works!

I very much enjoyed our meeting today at the zoo. I was a little too embarrassed to admit what a light-weight I am in photography but after seeing your photos here I am so impressed.
I wish we would have disclosed our love of classical music sooner on our encounter. I have no freinds who share that interest with me.
Hope to see you soon.

Oh dear... can't believe I spelled "road" wrong. Must be toooo early in the morning. I guess Pbase does that to you!
Fay Stout07-Nov-2008 12:01
Good morning Walter... Have been enjoying your galleries, particularly food, Diego, the jellyfish, self portraits and the multitude of photos that show your great sense of humor. If you see someone traveling the rode waving like a wild woman you will know I have spotted your license plate! Happy shooting... Fay
Doug Cruden06-Nov-2008 08:24
Hi Walter, just thought I'd let you know how much I've enjoyed visiting your gallery over the past few months.

It really is a superb collection of photos of the highest quality, certainly one of my very favourite galleries on Pbase - the individual shots themselves are so clean, balanced and full of detail and finesse, and it's been a true source of inspiration to me in my attitude & approach to and execution of architectural B&W photography.

Fantastic stuff, hope to see much more like this from you on Pbase :o)


Paul Levesque14-Aug-2008 21:40
Dave your macro gallery is simply amazing.

Hej Walter, amazing galleries.... You have a great eye for photography, and a unique sense of style. I have truly enjoyed going through your galleries - the range and variety of topics, the originality of viewpoint, and the quality. Well done, keep it up ! Greetings from Poland. Pawel
Guest 07-Aug-2008 11:38
Beautiful travel photos. you know you should really make an album in this site and show people (friend, family,site etc ) where you get to travel like I suggested some friends here.

like this gallery:

its free and you can share with us the places you traveled to on the map. takes 3-4 minutes...
(this is NOT a site to replace PBASE, it's for sharing albums with music and send to friends and share here with your photos)
María Cano28-Jun-2008 07:33
Hi Walter

I have take a quick look into your Pbase and I like it a lot. All the galleries are spectacular and I'm not be able to choose only one. You'll see me diving into your collections. A question .. UCD? I have been for 6 months but I haven't any photos. Regards, Maria

Hey again... Well, a few hours later and the situation is slowly fixing itself. Now instead of the blue titles I have the little white "creating thumbnails" boxes appearing and I'm able to open the Original size picture... Aren't computers fun?
geonni banner09-Jun-2008 02:04
Hey Walter. Are you having any problem with uploading images? Today I uploaded 12, and they "appear" in my galleries, but only as a blue title with the regular title underneath. I looked at the help section, FAQs, etc., but no mention of this. Plus I find nothing in the forum. Wassup? D'you have any idea??
Dave Perez29-May-2008 21:02
Walter, I have a question.

By chance, do you know Herbert Knufken? He is on Pbase and he lives in San Diego.

He left a comment on under one of Sarah's photos recently, so I visited his galleries. I am very impressed with many of his photos ....... especially this recent one at:

Hi Walter,

Thanks for the kind words on my gallery, which in turn pointed me to your gallery. I usually make it over to your coast about once a year, and really enjoyed seeing pics of San Diego from your fresh perspective! It's cold and rainy here in Baltimore and I wish I was watching the dogs frolic on Dog Beach... Great galleries, and a great reminder to keep off the beaten path when in San Diego!

RSantos02-Nov-2007 01:01
Thank you sir, in behalf of the smurfs. I enjoyed your galleries as well. Keep shooting!:)

Hi Walter,

vielen Dank für deinen netten Kommentar zu meinen Pfeifenseiten. Allerdings hast du dir dazu die am wenigsten geeignete beziehungsweise die optisch am ärmlichsten daherkommende Seite ausgesucht: Das ist nur meine Zwischenstation, von der aus ich die Bilder an ihre richtigen Plätze verteile.

Trotzdem nochmals vielen Dank! :-)

Herzliche Grüße aus good old Germany (deiner alten Heimat?),

Paul Riley14-Oct-2007 13:22
Hi Walter,

Thank you for visiting 'Indonesia from the Passenger Seat 2007'.

The traffic, particularly around Jakarta, will have grown out of all proportion since you were biking it in 1973. I lived in Indonesia from 1972 to 1999 and then 2003 to date. I noticed a big increase when I came back in 2003 and the number of motorbikes in particular grows at an alarning rate. I will continue to take photographs from the passenger seat to the gallery as it passes the time since I seem to spend so long in a car each day.

Regards, Paul

I have enjoyed looking at your photos - and have added you to my favorites list - so I'll be back.
Mark Eaton22-Apr-2007 02:10
Hi Walter. Thanks for the nice comments on my prison gallery. I hope they still apply now that I've finished 'construction': adding many more photos and attempting to organize them some. I enjoyed several of your galleries here, especially 'Little Italy'. Keep it up.

Hi Walter
The snake was actually not that big, maybe 1.5m. I took the shot from the window of our hire car, I didn't actually get out, but I could get a nice zoom on it while it looked annoyed. I started a new job in October, so my "way to work and back" gallery should contain some new images soon. I'll have more chance to do the shots after work when the clocks change again and it's still daylight.
Bis dann
Kat19-Jan-2007 21:15
Thank you Walter for your very kind comments on my galleries. I haven't looked through all of your pictures yet, I will take my time. Your in my "Favourites" now and I will keep coming back.

Hallo Walter,

danke für Deine freundliche Nachricht, aus San Diego von einem Koelner zu hoeren ist etwas besonderes.

Ich habe Deine Gallerien besucht und sofort wurden Erinnerungen wach. Ich war vor einigen Jahren für ein paar Tage in San Diego. Ich erinnere mich an den großen Hafen ohne Schiffe (zumindest habe bis auf zwei Kriegsschiffe ich keine dort gesehen) und an ein ausgezeichnetes Sushi-Restaurant. Auf jeden Fall ist San Diego ganz anders als Koeln, nicht nur weil es am Meer liegt. Vermisst Du Koeln hin und wieder?

Die Fotos aus dem Botanischen Garten gefallen mir ebenfalls sehr gut, ich habe aber noch nicht alles gesehen. Das hole ich in den naechsten Tagen nach.

Viele Gruesse aus Koeln
