Hello John, I've just seen a portion of your photos, you've really been busy.
Beautiful pictures ...., and so many species.
I have put you in my favorites and I want to see all the rest for sure.
We met in Sierra Espuna.
I hope we meet again someplace.
Greetings from U.S

thank you for share!

I would like to print your panoramic Doha skyline for my wall. Please, advise as to fees for downloading an image reproducible in large format (approx. 160 cm in length). Your photo is the best I've seen of the West Bay skyline. If you know of a shop in Doha capable of making such a print, that would be great.
Thanks, Kat

Hello John

Super Fotos !!!

I am a Hobby-Zoologist from Austria and I work on a list of all bird species (only for myself and personal use). I want to add to all the animals in the list a picture, so I want to ask you, if I am allowed, to copy some pictures from your picture gallery by pbase in my lists - only for private use! I will not create a homepage, I will not sell the photos and I will not publish the photos - I only want to add them to my lists.
I am looking forward to a permission to copy some photos,

Yours faithfully

Stopped by for a visit. Very nice John as usual...

Investigated your site having seen your excellent "Birdguides" postings. Some fabulous images and it encourages me to stop over in Doha for longer than just catching a connecting flight.I have wondered how diverse the birding is, my personal Qatar lists stands at just 3 in 6 trips around the airport runways !

Mr Thompson
I was searching for information regarding gulf helicopters and in general Qatar, i am very interested in working for gulf helicopters and wanted to find info on moving out there with my family before i apply later this month. Are you one of the pilots there? your site has given me a nice view and hopefully some pictures to lure the missus, safety is a big issue obviously, but you mentioned virtually no crime rate, and things look very clean.
i will keep researching, but thanks for the insite

Hi there Abdurahman, yes I still live here in Qatar and have lived here since 1978 so its my home I guess all I need is a Qatarie passport I guess. I love this place.
Welcome hope you will enjoy your life here as much as I do. Regards John

Hello John, I hope you can help me. I am an artist disabled with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis ALS "Lou Gehrig's disease " also called motor neuron disease MND. This progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease has left me paralyzed in a wheelchair unable to care for myself.

To raise awareness of ALS/MND I have started a project attempting to get a piece of my art photographed in every country in the world. I am looking for a way to get a piece my artwork photographed in Qatar. I can e-mail a JPEG image of the art to you, then you can print it, photograph the printout of my art on location and e-mail the image back to me. I ask that the picture be taken outside with some distinguishable features to tell me where the photograph was taken. I also ask that you tell me the place/ town it is photographed in and any other interesting information you might wish to include.

This is strictly a noncommercial project. Despite my severe disability, I have done a considerable amount of work for the ALS Association and the Muscular Dystrophy Association in the United States, appeared on television several times, featured in national and local publications, testified at government hearings in support of the disabled, etc.

This project seems impossible sitting at home every day in my wheelchair. But it can come true with a little help from the kindness of strangers. I ask you kindly to give it serious consideration. A small amount of your time will make a world of difference to me!

I hope you can help me with this important request or refer me to someone who can. Thanks for your time and I look forward to your response, sincerely, Fred Siwak, Ipswich, Massachusetts, United States of America. E-mail:

I'm trying so hard to reach every country. Is there any way you can help me with Qatar? Thanks!

Hi Chuck I have only had my 10D for just three weeks so I'm still learning how to use it. I bought canon lenes 17-40mm f4L, 50mm f1.4 and I had already a 24mm f2.8 plus I purchased a sigma 70-300mmf4-5/6 II APO I'm still shooting jpeg but using or trying all different settings. I used on my G3 a lot with Raw but still need to get to know the 10D first
regards john
Chuck Kuhn22-May-2004 17:15
I've had my 10D for a year now..great camera. Do you shot reg Jpg or raw? I still use the auto jpg dial. What lenses are you using. Check some from my 10D
