Nike embraces flexibility but goes a step further with Flynit, emphasizing the lightweight material component, as if the shoe is an ultrasonic test jet. Look, ethos aside, it's going to be a spectacular shoe in merit and in sales. The market has reacted:

I LOVE the photo called "Flowers" - the one that was chosen by the Portland Flower Show 2008 Poster.......with the clothes hanging on the line and the flowers in the forground.
I just love looking at this scene
I can almost feel the sun and the gentle breeze on my face.
I can smell the freshness of the clothes.
I can hear the wind rustling the leaves.
....the bees making their way throughout the flowers.
A photo that makes you FEEL the experience of the image......
is a GREAT photo.
scott 05-Apr-2008 12:04
great pics.... you could inspire many to pick up a camera and see how beautiful the world can make it look so easy.
Guest 29-Jan-2008 22:45

Guest 14-Jul-2007 17:56
I HATE visiting your galleries!!!! Everytime I do I am reminded of a time when I lived just up the street from Nubble Light in an A frame. Your images are truely incredible. I miss that place so much. I remember walks on York beach and scuba diving at the base of Nubble. I was back there a few years ago and it has changed so much. Multi million dollar buildings cantilevered out over the water. Your images are by far the best I have ever seen of Nubble Light. Keep up the great work and thanks for visiting my galleries.

Hi Don! You asked about a picture in my aviation gallery some time ago...I just now saw it. The airplane is a 747-200. And OE means Operational Experience, when a person goes fly the line with an instructor when finished with simulator training. I enjoyed looking through your have some great pictures too.

I appreciated the comments from a great photographer like you!! I am living in Hong Kong which is crowded with 7+ million people. We are still lucky enough to have about 200 species of butterflies found in Hong Kong. I will keep shooting and share those nature's treasure with others.

Sunday morning 12/10/06: I have spent the entire morning at your website. I have exxperienced autumn in N. Conway and the deep sensitivity with which you captured Jack's life. I have visited each of your galleries and they are inspirational. I am more than ever commited to painting.

Wow, Donald I count myself fortunate to have been at Portland Headlight today as you were capturing the moment(s)...power driven waves...dancing waves of light...very special. I will be coming back to your site for more of those moments...powerful.

Thanks for introducing me to Elizabeth and her work...Two wonderful artists working in concert..lovely.
xd08-Nov-2006 23:41
Thanks for taking time to look through my galleries. Thank you for the compliments. I like your light house photos very much. It makes me think of the way Claude Monet painted his series by simply changing the time of day and he painted.
Guest 02-Nov-2006 13:10
Good morning Don

Really love your work, wonderful!

To answer your question about my egret photo. I was from a local park. The sunset reflected from the water makes the nice background. And the egrets are busy to get their dinner. I was luck enough to get his one. It is almost a full frame. I forgot if i crop or not, but even if i did, it will be less than 10%. thanks again for your comments.
Guest 28-Oct-2006 08:30
Hello Donald,
Thanks for your kind comment on the "Sunset over Abashiri" photo and "Hokkaido East" Gallery. Your galleries are truely amazing.

Maurice Mc Duff26-Oct-2006 19:21
Hello Donald. You must be a meteorologist, your reading of sky colors is perfect. I realy appreciate the luminous rendering and composition of your landscapes, your ligthouse pictures are amasing, very colorfull, a great piece of creativity !

Mark Dreiling24-Oct-2006 15:46
Thanks for the the comments on my northeast Oklahoma wildlife shots. There is not much here to compare to your great New England scenes. I have found that beating the bushes on a regular basis reveals so many things that went unobserved for many years.
KW 23-Oct-2006 18:06

Don-Great work. Only a local guy could get this many great shots of the lighthouse. Some are outstanding and really capture the "magic of mother nature" along side mans work.
Thanh Nguyen 23-Oct-2006 00:15
Donald, it was a pleasure to spent time shooting pictures with you at the light house yesterday. your work is fabulous, I love the way you play with the light and your composition. I had a great time in Vermont, Maine last week even though most of the color is gone..
Thanks for sharing your work and I'm looking forward to meet you again.
Thanh Nguyen
Patrick DeSouza 20-Oct-2006 21:17
Well Mr. Verger:
I have spent many happy hours with "your images" They are wonderful. I am sure you know that. I know little of photography. how that magic is accomplished, but I do know that you seem to be able to capture in an image part of what it felt like on that day, in that place at that tmme, and to be able to do that is very very special...

Thank you
Joe 19-Oct-2006 02:49

Your lighthouses are wonderful. I love lighthouses and barns. One we have around here, the other...not. I live in the mountains. :-)

Any way it must be my peranoia (sp). I love you pictures. My favorite is the window that looks through to the other window and the sun shine. I will look more and give more feed back. You have inspired me. Thank you.. Heidi

Teila K. Day21-Aug-2006 19:02

You've a wonderful gallery here that is filled with "real life". While visiting your gallery, I felt as if I was there interacting with people and even viewing the barns in person. One thing that really amazes me, is how well you photograph with the Nikon 4500. I love the swivel design (I own a Nikon 900s), however I never generated photos as nice as yours. It is very obvious that you are very adept at capturing and relating moments in time to others. Good work! Sincerely, Teila

Tina Duffy 03-Jul-2006 23:10
Don, I saw your photographs at the Lincoln Library today, July 3. Years ago, you and I were colleages at Hanscom Middle School. You left to form the Acton Children's museum. Which much to my delight, our grandchildren enjoy visiting.
Congratulations on your creative endevours, I loved your photos.

Hi Don, what a wonderful and refreshing gallery.., i'll be coming back for sure!! cheers
Guest 28-Jun-2006 09:00
Thanks for your comments in my Simplicity gallery. I keep hopping back and forth between doing "normal" and more abstract stuff as I try to improve, and it's great to see what people respond to. I actually didn't think too much about that leaf photo at first, but it's become one of my favourites over time... I'm at work right now and can't really delve into your galleries, but they look wonderful and I will certainly take a close look when I have the time to give them the attention they clearly deserve.
Guest 27-Jun-2006 20:19
Don, thank you for visiting and commenting on my photos. I've enjoyed looking at yours, which are magnificent!

Don Verger, regarding the Richard Calmes photograph of the oddly yet stunningly posed beautiful ballerina..........
A story behind her, Talk about a life challenge, Her name Whitney Sue, an aspireing Prima Ballerina who was involved in an auto accident experiencing the same type injury that actor Christopher Reeves experienced (Broken Neck).
She was in an automobile accident 3 days after Richard Calmes (PBase member) took this shot She broke 2 vertabrae-same as actor, now deceased, Christopher Reeves.
She had to wear a halo device for 5 months.
It was screwed into her skull.
She could not shower or wash her hair for fear of infection.
After the halo came off, she wore a collar for 3 weeks.
She got the collar off on Monday (Recently).
Her extreme strength and conditioning are the reason she was not paralized the doctors say.
She wanted to take part in the shoot with the girls she has been so close to so Lisa (co-ordinater) put her in the pose you commented on.
Richard calls the pose the "I'm back" look.
(I call that pose stunning and it was created for her)
She is very well known throughout the USA and Europe as one of the most promising young dancers. She was going to Juliard this fall.
Now she has decided (wisely) to take the next year to get back in shape.
She will attend Georgia State and go to class every day.
You can see how beautiful she is.
And she is a beautiful person!

Hi Donald. Many thanks for your visit encouragement and vote. I have been toying with idea of selling cards for a long time and have had a lot of satisfaction making them by hand. I didn't print them myself, my printer is not good enough and it was actually very cheep to get the done commercially, 13 cents per foto.
Thanks again Cheers Dougie

Don, your work is "Uhdahn Kaselel!" I wish I can view this island through your lense. Everyday, I asked myself, "What the heck am I doing here?" but then your pictures remind me that I had once wanted to come back to paradise. Maybe we'll meet in New York soon.

Hi Don. Love your barn gallery. Couple of my barn galleries. Have many more shot I have not put up. Like two disk full. Never pass a barn without trying for a shot, they are disappearing so fast.
As for the robin shot you are welcome to use it,as long as I get credit for it. I only shot for my own pleasure. Thanks for asking. Do you neeed a larger file. It was shot with a Pansonic Z10 .

Don, thank you so much for your so kind and inspirated comments to my galleries and photos. It was a real pleasure to read them and i felt a strong encouragement coming from your part. Yesterday I browsed for the first time some of your galleries and I was asthonished by the high quality of your work, from both conceptual and representational points of view. It will be always a pleasure for me to come back here for inspiration and a good deep breath of aesthetic delight. added you to favorites, naturally.
Best regards,
Shu22-Sep-2005 16:26
Yours are some of the most inspirational galleries I've seen on Pbase and folks like you and Phil Douglas bring so much more to your images with your commentary. Thank you for the many compliments you've left under my "Look Into The Water" abstract gallery. I value your critiques due to your great artistic ability. Take care and continue to bloom in the light of your wonderful work. Shu
Guest 18-Sep-2005 00:11
I love looking at your work. About the 13 photos you have for your 12 month calendar...maybe use all of them? Make #13 the cover. I look forward to placing an order!
Guest 16-Sep-2005 16:23
Don, your photos are exquisite. You know what would be wonderful, given your eye for color study? How about a calendar based on the color wheel? You could divide the seasons by color, winter could be for 'analogous' colors (adjacent colors on the color wheel), like blue, blue/violet and violet, summer could be for color triads made from equilateral triads like red, yellow and blue, spring could be for triads from isoscoles triangles, like red/violet, yellow and green, and fall could be for "quadratic" chords based on a square, like red, yellow/orange, green and blue/violet...just an idea and maybe way too complicated...but interesting... Have you seen Johannes Itten's 'color star'? I have a color wheel based on it which provides great inspiration about color schemes and harmonies...
Guest 10-Sep-2005 22:49
Wonderful galleries you have here. There are so many photos to check out, I will have to make a 2 day viewing of it! Thanks for the compliment on my humming bird gallery. Take care and keep taking those wonderful pics!

I met your wife in gallery 302 the other day. She really likes my tulip painting. I asked her if you would be interested in bartering with me : I would barter the tulip painting for two of your works: the picture of Crescent Lake and one of the lady of marble with the piece of blue sky (if it is available). Let me know what you think. We each would have to pay the gallery's 17 %, right? Linda PS I upped the price on the tulips because I wanted to make sure your wife got first refusal...I will put it at $225 for you.
Gul Chotrani08-Aug-2005 04:06
Wow.... pretty amazing stuff here.

Thank you a lot Donald, for your very kind words on my humble work. I've seen your work (and I had seen it before, but normaly I'm to lazy to write... ;) and it's really interesting, I will return over it when I have more time.

I see you're in Maine... I'd love to visit New England, specially while your gorgeous fall.

Jean-Luc Elias31-Jul-2005 12:26
Don, it makes me very happy to see that you like my pictures that much, I never got so many comments and votes from one person I think. Or is it that we have both the same interests and styles in photography, I saw a lot of same subjects and approach in your photocollection that reminds me of my own pictures.

My best regards and thanks,Jean-Luc from Belgium.
Teri Bonatti 28-Jul-2005 03:03
hey there, saw you in Bridgton at Art in the Park...( the girl with the broken hand.) Just checking out your work, good stuff.
Guest 26-Jul-2005 13:33
Don...thanks for the warm compliments on pictures. Considering the quality of your cloud and sky images I feel I'm in excellent company with you in this particular fun field of photography...what the sky says can make or break a photo. I can't wait to get a DSLR to increase the quality of my images. Quite a few of my images are taken with good old 35mm and my scanner doesn't do them justice..although some of the images, I admit are kind of old and faded. I've been through your galleries before and have voted numerous times...I'm a firm believer in supporting Pbase members and using my votes to help them get more recognition for their talent.

Donald, thank you for your comments on my galleries. As far as the Everest picture is concerned, while I am a very active climber I haven't, nor do I wish to, climbed Everest. The shot was taken from Kala Pattar, a 5600m little lump beside it! Thanks for being so enthusiastic about it and I'd be happy for you to send it on to your son! kind regards. Angus

Guest 02-Jul-2005 02:53
Hi Don - Just thought i let you know how I took the daylily picture you asked about. It was out in my flower garden and I placed a chair behind the flowers (about 1 ft behind) on which was draped my black wool winter coat (the black background). I used my Nikon D100 with a 105 macro lens and a SB-29s macro speedlight at 1/13 sec at f32. The camera was about 3 ft away from the flower for that closeup. The flash supplemented the bright sunshine .
I enjoyed looking through you galleries and particularly liked your sunset/sunrises and your favorites gallery - Ann
Guest 29-Jun-2005 17:33

Hi Don,
Glad to know you are still watching my hummers pictures. Thank you for your warm comments.
To clean the mildew in your feeder, the best tool is baby's milk bottle cleaning brush, you can very easily to put it into the small hole of your feeder, the brush then spread out in the easy. Try it out.
Best regrds.

henrywong19-May-2005 04:21
Hi Don,
Thanks a lot for your kind comments on my Hammers. I was not always use flash for most of the Hammers pics, reason being once I turned on the flash, the shutter speed would be automatically set not faster than 1/250s, that's a bit slow for capture the Hammer's wings movement, however if I were in extreme difficult lighting condition, I had no choice . I'm living in BC of Canada, it's not so difficult to find the Hammers in the parks, but it's a bit difficult to catch them in flight and to choose the clear and clean background to reflect the Hammers wings movements. Of course, photoshop is the good tool for me to do some montage works.
I enjoy very much for viewing your galleries, they are so amazing and so beautiful, you have done the excellent works so far and I will visit your galleries again and again.
Happy shooting!
John Beck18-May-2005 11:40
You have a wonderful gallery. Many of your techniques are exactly what I strive for. I'll be back periodically, as time permits, to view and hopefully comment. John

Thank you for your comment regarding one of my pads. I am especially appreciative because it gave me the opportunity to come and enjoy your beautiful galleries!

Thanks for interest in my Bird Self-portrait gallery. I am a retired physicist who still sees photos as data and the new camera as an opportunity to build gadgets. I look at galleries like yours to help get more of a sense of art. I have struggled with the issue of saturation in the bird photos. Procrastination has left most of the pictures dull, but sometimes more realistic - like the Red-shouldered hawks. Thanks, Mark Dreiling

Greetings, Donald!
I had a look through some of your galleries and enjoyed it thoroughly! Great compositions and artistry. You've shown a wonderful sense of the world around you! I've added you to my list of favorites. And thanks for the comments, and vote, for the recent rose image in my PaD gallery for May....much appreciated!

A lot of beautiful shots. Happy to visit your galleries.
Guest 22-Apr-2005 01:15
Very nice. I will definately be back to explore further. Thanks for the comments on my barns.
Donald Verger21-Apr-2005 18:22

Nice photos, Don. Has anyone figured out the bird game yet? I think it's a peregrine falcon. Am I correct???
jane 10-Apr-2005 21:41
Don - wanted to email the paintings I have done of some of your photos (remember I told you - and you have taken several photos of my barn, I see!!) but your email is not posted. Please write me back so I can show you my version of your shots.
Guest 25-Mar-2005 12:56
I just have to keep coming back to your incredible atmospheric images - captivating
David Royce 10-Mar-2005 22:10
. . . That subject is a dirty word, right? Just thought I'd differ mildly with your comment on this site that you won't touch it.
. . . To my mind, PhotoShop cheating is altering the main objects in the frame -- their form or their "local" color (the paint, dye or weathering that's part of the surface).
. . . BUT I think PhotoShop right to move us closer to what we were trying to get in the frame, closer to the "real thing" that the camera didn't quite grab.
. . . Two examples. Your stunning sun behind island with fog shots came out, you said, "more yellow than I remember." I agree, and I P-Shopped them back to a more neutral tone (picking up some vague blueness in the sky) for my wallpaper. Another: Your "Maine winter" series includes a forest, pic #37448335. Pretty shot, and it's my monitor's wallpaper right now. But it had some wires running through the trees near the bottom. I define that picture as Mother Nature at work, not Ma Bell. With a few strokes, I speckled the wires with branches from nearby trees, and now it looks like nobody ever ran copper on this side of the water.
. . . I think PhotoShop is like the cops. You never like to see them, but they're handy and undeniably valuable when there's a moment of need.
. . . As ever, I find your stuff awesome in its grandeur and simplicity.

Don, Thanks for the comments on my 747/Forest fire image. I work as a pilot for a major airline and I took the shot while flying up to Anchorage Alaska this past summer. Many times during the flight we pass aircraft coming down from Anchorage into the states on the same route. The 747 happened to pass us while we were looking at the forest fire just northwest of Edmomton. It is one of my favorites! Thanks for checking it out. Really liked your albums. I grew up a Red Sox fan in CT and now I live in Chicago. The sox are out here this year to play the Cubs in June. I will be there! Greg Lipinski

Merry Christmas Donald...I was browsing the Galleries section this morning and noticed your " One Magic Morning " Gallery ( great images ) and could not help but remember a morning I had just the other day. Like you, I live in a State ( Montana ) that can and does get some very cold mornings, and if you dare brave the cold some fantastic images can be made. I invite you to visit my Website,( GLOphotography ) and view my Fog, and Winter's Canvas Galleries....keep shooting those mystical momments...a fellow photographer...Gary O

Donald, your work is beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing!
Peter Hollinger10-Dec-2004 12:59
Hi Donald --
Thanks for your comment on . If you look through my galleries you'll notice I hardly ever do this kind of editing -- I mostly shoot "straight from the camera" like you, occasionally cropping but usually composing in the camera (habit from slides?). My only other photoshopped example I can think of is . Keep shooting -- I like your stuff!
-- Peter

hey donald,

thanks for compliment on flower pic. as to your question, in photoshop I clicked on purple in flower to choose color, then used pencil tool to outline flower, then colored rest of background. It took awhile, lol

Nice gallery by the way

Thanks for visiting my galleries and leaving your kind words. You have many excellent photos here and you have your own unique style. I'll be back to look for your updates. Happy shooting!!!
Ed Knepley05-Nov-2004 03:20
Don, Thanks for the comment on my oak tree. I was most interested in what you said about hemlocks. Here's an example of what's happened to our giant 400 year old hemlocks in Shenandoah Park. The skeletons in this shot were beautiful hemlocks only ten years ago.

Guest 25-Oct-2004 20:33
Thank you so much for the encouraging words you left in my gallery! I have spent the last several hours reviewing your galleries - WOW! I feel very honored to receive a compliment from someone as talented as yourself. Your galleries are (a repeat to one of the comments I left) - BREATHTAKING!

I have loved all aspects of photography for many years, especially viewing others works of art. I have been playing with digital photo editing for the past five years or so but just recently gotten up the courage to share with others.

Your kind words are so appreciated!

Thanks again, Renae (

John, thank you so much for your encouragement!!!!! I enjoy and am inspired by your work. I have been trying to get sauturated and not overexposed images..... and to see.... be well, don
John Hastings21-Oct-2004 13:04

Thanks for your comments and visit to my galleries. I’m glad you ‘wrote’ because I might otherwise have missed your excellent work here. That would be my loss.

The colourful intensity and creative composition of the images speak volumes. You seem to wring the best from your subject and pour much of yourself into the end result. I really enjoyed the viewing.

Please accept my thanks for posting your pictures and my (belated) welcome to PBase. I hope you enjoy it all.
