Thank you, Don, for your pictures as well as correcting the inaccuracies that seem to crop up. My classmate Jimmy's dad and uncle lost their lives during the Pillsbury explosion...a strange and sad conclusion to the Christmas holiday.

Guest 06-Mar-2013 00:25
Hi Don, don't know if you remember me from my days at Citi. I have always admired your work and look at your site frequently. Do you do any commission work? I moved into a new home last summer and just finished re-decorating the den. All that's missing is the artwork. I'm visualizing larger scale black and white photos of prominent Buffalo Architecture. Contact me if this is any interest to you. Thanks!

David Coe 15-Jul-2012 23:29
Your photos are beautiful!

Wish I had the time to view them all.
Marlene Rose Besso28-Nov-2011 23:58
I stumbled across your gallery while updating mine here on glad I did! WOW..viewing your amazing photos of Buffalo have now made me PROUDER than ever to call myself a Buffalonian! I did move to California a few months after the BLIZZARD of 77! My family owned Manny's Supper Club on Delaware Avenue. I was wondering if you ever took any photos of that block of historic Brownstones where Manny's was?
Mary Eisenbeis 22-Oct-2011 22:28
Don, I love looking at your photos. They're so saturated with color and the compositions are beautiful. Wish I could take pictures like you. Do you teach classes?
John Leitner Lang 29-Sep-2011 09:59
I had not seen either the PBN website nor your photos before. Have my roots in the dark-and-depressed, so sadly neglected but once beautiful Buffalo near East Side (was born and spent my early years just four blocks from what was then Humboldt Park). My mother had graduated from Fosdick Masten High School. She used to take me to a Turnverein, where I started appreciating the German heritage I came from. Your photos are wonderful, showing so many shades of slices of life, and reminding Buffalonians, newcomers or from many generations back, that the city is beautiful even now, was exceptionally beautiful in the past, and surely can be both vital and beautiful again.
jimmy 28-Sep-2011 20:32
Hello don great photo`s but i`m looking for some photo`s you took of 2 niagara square window cleaning high-rise you gave us your card just trying to see how good they came out and maybe add some to my collection

Don, Thank you for taking a picture of my son & me at the Buffalo State 5K Run today. Your galleries are incrediable. Looking forward to seeing the picture & more of your work.
CKCanada 19-Nov-2010 00:24
You're work is beautiful and an inspiration. I lived on a the road as a child and one of the few places which was memorable was Buffalo. It's a beautiful City, where it's hard to feel a stranger. Very accepting and down to earth. I've travelled, and that's hard to find, so it's something to be proud of. It made an impression in my mind and I hope someday to help you out. Thanks for sharing your amazing work, I hope others find it and pay for it...well worth it.
Kathie Johnson 20-Oct-2010 21:49

Hi Don. Don't know if you would remember me, my name is Angela and I used to work for you when you opened the Tim Hortons in East Aurora. I had no idea of what a wonderful photographer you were, these pictures are amazing. Thank you for sharing your talent with the world. Do you do family portraits?
Guest 13-Mar-2010 12:42

Spent a short time browsing through your thumbnails. It looks like you have many wonderful shots. When life slows down a little I will have to come back and spend some more time. Good job.
csimpson 23-Oct-2006 21:24

You have some great shots of the bridge. I am looking for about 7 or 8 pictures depicting Grand Island for the High School yearbook. I am looking for a few of the bridge, the water with a sunset, and maybe an aerial of the Island. Are you for hire for any other type of photography?
Guest 16-Sep-2006 00:21

Just saying hello.
Larry Fortunato informed me I should view your Old Fort Niagara photos, and I'm glad he did as I'm finding your photos very interesting.
Also my main interest is road cycling, I don't have any photos posted on that, but this year I'm taking my little DiMAGE G500 with me and will get some shots.
I'll keep in touch with your galleries.

Regards from a fellow cyclist

Love the picture of the 'beloved' brick/cobblestone road. It can be noisy but it is historic. I'll be stopping over for a copy to frame, your neighbor at 86.
Deanne 14-Apr-2005 00:07

Your pictures are wonderful. I really enjoy the images you have created with the different shots of houses and buildings.

Thanks for stoping by my page, and commenting on my image. I really appreciate it. I took a look at your gallery, and you have some wonderful images.
Guest 03-Apr-2005 03:50

We had to rush all her shots because there was alot going on and very little time to shoot.We just went behind her house and used what was available and took bout an hour .She's coming to Ga. this summer and we're gonna spend a week shooting.....can't wait!!!
tom 02-Apr-2005 00:20
Don, just finished looking at your photos. I had no idea of the eye you have for subjects and colors. And I have the same camera!!!
Your neighbor at 89 NFB.
Guest 28-Mar-2005 16:14
Thank you for your comment on the photo of my son and his Tamborine skills. Yes, he's passionate to say the least. See your great shots--and there many, many great shots and subjects-- gets me motivated to keep shooting.

Thanks again,
Russell Christie27-Mar-2005 13:49
thanks for the comment.I am "retired" and my main passion is recording objects of beauty, particularly nature and old things.
Guest 25-Mar-2005 22:02
Thanx for your nice comment in my gallery. Very much apreciated ;)
Guest 09-Mar-2005 02:12

Hello my friend. I am now convinced that you lead the most extraordinary, and possibly secretive, life of any person I know. All of your pictures are utterly amazing. I must say that you should abandon your current day job and become a freelance photographer (well maybe after you win the lottery)! You have an undeniable talent, and I look forward to seeing any future photos that you post.

Guest 03-Mar-2005 06:28
I can name only a few but I just love the California Pacific Coast gallery and the American History, you sure got the eye.

Thank you for commenting on my work.
Valeska23-Feb-2005 17:16
Hello Don
I can't make B&W pictures with my camera. Only a couple very expensive can. I changed them later with Photoshop. I look at the contrast in dark and light and at the textures.
It’s nice to do.
Warm regards Valeska

Dear City-Slicker:

What a reversal of roles. Who'd a thunk we'd end up this way.
