Looking through your recent posts, I'm glad to see you're thriving artistically in the Pacific northwest.
You're an inspiration. I'd love to visit the area. It's such a contrast to arid and harsh southern California.
Love looking at your images. Keep em coming!
I can tell that you put a lot of effort into your pictures.
These are beautiful pics! I can't wait to see more ... thank you for sharing with me
Always a pleasure to see what you've been seeing. Best wishes from Long Island!
Your images are so great! Commenting on one would be injust to all the other...
I will offen come back to admir your work.
Thank you Carol for stopping by .
You are a true gifted artist and the world of photography that I have seen through your lens is just impeccable and exquisite .
My most sincere compliments and I will visit again .
Where do I begin? I could spend hours in your galleries. So much terrific work from one with an eye for the moods and atmosphere, but also the graphic and the art in every scene.
you do beautiful work! happy holidays! shu
Your work is in the great tradition of american photography. You give us only the best. Jean-Claude.
Thanks for visiting my Death valley gallery. It was my first trip there and I am still awed and overwhelmed by the expansive, unique beauty. I feel like it is impossable to describe the overall impact of the landscape and impossable too, to capture it in photos. Little snapshots of various parts can be captured and shared but they fail to communitate the overall impact of being there. However, I do have I have many more images and will continue to post one or two when I find time. Infact I am working on editing a few this afternoon.
I notice that you have began to post more frequently and am glad because your work is always interesting. Your point of view is unique and inspiring. Due to time restraints, I don't often comment and leave more time for viewing but I wish for more time to interact with others.
happy new year Carol, and thanks for dropping by my 'oregon high desert' gallery
You're already very good and I'm sure you'll post even better work in the future.
You have so beautifuly photos in yours portfolio...Excellent work...Greetings from Montenmegro, old/new country in Europa...I will come back with pleasure...
I stumbled upon your pictures by chance and I'm so glad that I did.
Gr8 photos Carol .....I am glad I found your galleries ....very inspirational ..!!
Hi Carol, thanks for visiting my galleries and leaving all those encouraging comments. Regards, Theo
I was in a "City" mood today - I was able to travel there without leaving my house and traveling through the gray valley fog! Thanks!
Everytime I click in to see what you have added, I find real treasure. I want to find time to go carefully through your galleries but so far I have even had trouble keeping up with viewing new posts.
Don't slowdown for me though, :)like you would anyway:) just keep posting your inspired work and I'll view it as I can. I really do enjoy seeing your work. Vanita
Carol, your spontaneous every day life shots of "Beast of Burden" and "Solola & Iximché" are truly amazing!
Hi Carol, thanks so much for leaving all those wonderful comments on my galleries. I really appreciate them. I have placed you on my favourite list. Regards, Fong
You truly have an eye for up close or tighter compositions, something that I am still learning how to explore. Your colors can really pull me in as well.
Best to you.....William
I'm a Vietnamese American and do love looking at things through the view finder of the camera.
You're one of the very few who, with the lenses, have seen Vietnam in such a perculiar way. I do enjoy all of your images of Vietnam in particular and of other galleries as well.
Thanks for sharing your work.
Great images, beautifully presented. You have a fine sense of colour and composition.
I enjoyed you galleries enormously.
I haven't had a chance to look over your galleries, just the one from Guatamala. I would like to post a link to Pbase on my blog with your picture of the weaver if that's ok with you.
Carol..... many thanks for all your nice comments in my Tibet/Nepal galleries - they're being constantly updated and still another 100 images to be posted over the weeks.
QUE HERMOSAS FOTOS! SON INCREIBLES SIMPLEMENTE TIENES TALENTO CON EL LENTE DE TU CAMARA TUS FOTOS SON UNA INSPIRACION PARA MI. GRACIAS POR MOSTRAR TU TRABAJO!
Your sister Barbara told me about your work. Very impressive! I enjoyed your galleries immensely.
Ypu are a fine artist with the camera as a brush! All of your images convey their messages in very clear strong graphics! I really enjoy your work!
Hi Carol: Thanks for the kind words! I wrote a reply last night, but I don't think it went through...I am a Northwest- based freelance photographer, with a contract to shoot for the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle. I've been obsessed lately with the tiger action shots, and "freezing" those critters in mock combat, before they slow down and just sleep all day...The cubs are one year old males, 180 pounds each and at the moment, full of energy. We have a great exhibit, and though it looks close, there is a deep concrete pit between me and them. I have been allowed behind scenes with many of the animals to photograph, but tigers are farrrrr too dangerous...I use the Canon 135L f 2.0 lens mostly for the tiger action, ISO at 4-800..and usually early befor the zoo opens...
Your images are beautiful, and I'll be back to view your work more! Dale Unruh
I like your style, you seem to shoot a lot using your telephoto, which makes for interesting views and details. Too few people shoot landscape or cityscape using telephoto lens and usually they work best.
In any case you definitely have a grest sense of composition, your latest SF gallery proves it.
Hi Carol. On my first visit to your galleries I can't leave without saying how much I found there to enjoy. Excellent work!
Érase una vez una maravilla...I am totally astonished by your photos!
nice homepage you've got!
keep up the good work
your work is truly inspirational and wonderful...i luv every gallery!! the colours,the compositions,the details...well done!!
thanks for sharing,
Well - what is there left to say - it's all here. I have enjoyed looking more than any other I have visited. Great stuff Carol.
Love your travel photos very much, especially the gallery on Mayans! Do take a look at my humble gallery and I appreciate your advice and comments!
Carol - thanks for your kind and generous comments in my galleries. It's always interesting to see what other photographers will respond to (not always what you'd think). I enjoyed browsing through yours as well, you have quite an original eye. Your photos are full of zazz! ;) - Bruce
After viewing one gallery I was sucked into your others. I'll be back - It was great. I love your unusual perspectives. vanita
Hi Carol I finally got round to viewing some of your galleries. They are very good and uplifting on a Friday afternoon after a hard week at work. I will return to view more soon.
Thank you for you good goment. I live in Hafnarfjordur just outsaid Reykjavík just a lovely plase. You should visit the country somtimes. thank you for your goment.
Yeah, it's me again... :-)
The more I go through your galleries the more I'm impressed by the quality. Each new gallery adds more carefully selected images that are always of a delight to savour time and time again. Congratulations for all the efforts you deploy, Carol, to maintain this level of creativity.
Excellent work. Your photo's are well composed and extremely artistic. Also, thank you for your kind words. As a native New Yorker don't be surprised if you find yourself in one of my galleries some day.
Another great series of shots from you especially the "British Columbia Revisited" ones ! Once again, you have the right "eye", well done !!
Carol, from France I congratulate your "eye" on the photos you are taking. You have a unique "style" ! Keep up the good work. I have voted for your photo called "crisis" and put a few comments here and there. The other fans have expressed the same postive adjectives so I won't repeat them, but I do share them as well.
A big "Well done" to you, Carol ! I have added you to my list of favourites too !
The world is blessed by souls like you who appreciate the beauty of creation.
Thank you for being and sharing your talent.
Very nice collection of work. Congraduations!
Thanks for the comments you left in my gallery. Yes, I'm from the Bay Area. I'm over in the Pleasant Hill/Walnut Creek area.
I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work!
Thank you very much for the kind words you wrote me on a photo of my "hair-raising" collection!!! Yes, you're right, it's a physics experiment which you can see at the most science centers in the world!!! The hair-raising static electricity Van De Graaff generator!!!
Hey, Carol, what an artist you are in photography!!! You've such a great "eye" for the beauty and know how to capture what you see!!! I love the way you take photos!!! Your compositions and colours are simply fantastic!!! I'm deeply impressed!!! Thank you very much for sharing your outstanding work!!!
God bless you and your family, Erik from Switzerland
I love your style!
Thanks for the kind words about my picture. Your work is extremely interesting and creative with great pictures and I'm going to be back to look at it even more closely. Best regards
Thanks a lot for visiting my gallery and for nice comments. This gave me an opportunity to discover your world full of creative fantasy.
Hello, I enjoyed your photos.Thx for sharing. :)
Great montage works you have, i still call these 'collage', i guess i'll have to get used to the 'new' word for this kind of work.
I was surprised to see you're dedicating this gallery to Phil, as i just did some digital crafting from one of his photographs.
Congratulations for a great gallery, keep adding up !
Visited your digital garden. My how it's growing. It's amazing what tender loving care has done. Lovely.
Gracias por compartirlas
Carol, I really love your images - very clean lines and excellent compositions
Carol- Thanks for coming by my galleries, and inturn, welcoming me to yours. Theses are some very beautiful shots. The portraits are lovely, and the GGB shot is stunning. A great view point I have never thought to take. I've been on the PaD project for just over 2 months and I am so amazed how it has opened my eyes creatively! I am glad that you have stopped to look, and took the time to comment. Thank yoU! Jeanne
Thanks for your wonderful comments!!!
I keep returning to your montages...wonderful!!!!
Thank you for looking through my galleries. Glad you enjoyed them.
The workshop in Sedona was the "Shutterbug Digital Photography Workshop Series". They are held at various great locations for fabulous photo shoots & 3 day workshops. I will be checking into another before too long. It was a wonderful way to see new places with people who also love photography.
Also checked out your galleries. Wonderful pictures. You have a good eye. The Las Vegas pics brought back memories of a recent visit. Thank you.
Very sorry it took so long to reply. Have been in a remodel project before 1st grandbaby arrives,(any moment).
Thanks Carol for your nice comments on my galleries. I look at yours too and enjoy a lot how you shoot architecture, especially your work on reflections.
I'd love to talk about your trip to England & Scotland.....we are planning on going this spring!!
My e-mail address is :
Thx for your comments on my boat shot. You have very nice shots in your gallery and I love the vivid sky color in the England shots.
Pardon me from not responding earlier on your fine words you left in my guestbook - days have been rather busy.
Thank you very, very much for the time you took to go through my galleries, and even more for those warming comments you left for me. This means a lot to me and strengthens my determination to keep on down the long and winding road of POD 365. Knowing that someone out there likes my work enough to take time to look repeadetly is indeed enlightening, and if my pics add a little pleasure to our everyday life, then I am very happy !
Thank you again
Carol, today is the day that Carol E. Sandgren Fan Club is apparently meeting in the pages of your guestbook. Bailey Zimmerman, one of pbase's most valued and respected artists, has checked in with this morning as well. And now I have stopped by to thank you for your latest comments on two of my pictures. Each of them encouraged me to post my own counter comments, extending the public dialogue and the teaching. You have become quite a catalyst to learning, my friend. I thank you still again for pursuing my galleries with such zeal and leaving a trail of valuable comments in your wake.
Thanks for taking the time to leave such thoughtful remarks on my galleries!!
Phil mentioned how wonderful your comments have been!! (He offers such great support & encouragement!!)
Your Vegas gallery is full of fun!!.. ...you must have had a great stay?!!
ps..My ex husband was the chief designer for the Venetian Hotel!!
Once again...many thanks!!
Carol, thanks for the delighful message in my guestbook. You are delightful correspondent, full of tough, thoughtful questions and strong opinions. It's a joy for me to help you in any way I can. And thanks for continually leaving comments on my pictures - I have posted counter comments on a number of them so that others can share our dialogue and perhaps learn something more about each of those examples.
Thanks, Carol, for the two wonderful comments you left on my pictures today. You have made two very important points that significantly increase the teaching potential of each of these images. Thanks so much for adding more meaning to my 'cyberbook"
