[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

The most important things on photography I learned them here on TN. My mentors will recognize themselves.

In July of this year (2007) I made a one week stay in Shefford in Estrie, Quebec, Canada. I took there approximately 1500 photographs of insects, landscapes and various subjects. From this number I retained a hundred of them which was used for the realization of a diaporama (duration: approximately ten minutes). Its size is of 39mb. Resolution: 1024 X 768. You can download it while following this link:

Shefford - July 2007

Good viewing.

Oh yes, the insect is a young Amblycorypha oblongifolia, Oblong-winged katydid ("Scuddérie à ailes oblongues" in French)

Hello Luc, my friend!!!

Great to see new post from you! How are you? Everything fine?

Good picture of Katyid, I like especially face to face POV. Green colours, light, details - everything are very good.

I hope will see you more often Luc!

Hello Luc,
Nice to see you here .
I hope all is well in your world.
Your trip to Shefford sounds as though it was very productive.
I shall look forward to viewing your diaporama thingy.
This is a very nice little Katydid you have brought us today.
Keep well my friend.
Best wishes,

Kia ora Luc, my dear old friend. I still think of you, especially when someone has posted a fox... I do miss you and your wonderful photos MF.
Tomorrow I will check out your website (it's late now).
It is so good to know that you are still taking photos and I hope all is well for you. How is your father? I remember your Christmas photos of his house.
You are right - I learned all I know about photography here on TN. And much help from you too.
I hope you will keep visiting - I'm here now and then
Kia ora and very best regards

Salut Luc,
Superbe photo macro! Très belle netteté et couleurs, les détails sont parfaits.

Hi Luc,

Good to see you here. Very good picture. I like it.


Hi Luc!

This insect is a very good model, looks like he's posing for you. Great details, sharpness
and clarity. I like his red eyes.

Greetings ... Ileana

Hi there my Eternal FRIEND.

Unfortunately I cannot thank you for all the other wonderful photos on TN this year just because this was the only one for the year. However, I can still thank you for all the sporadic visits to the site and those contributions that continuously pop up here, there, and everywhere. They do not go unnoticed and are much appreciated. I can also thank you for the wonderful "Diaporamas" you provided the links for. What a spectacular encounter of sight & sound. In addition I can express my gratitude for all you've meant for so many of us here on the site. It has not been forgotten and it will still linger for a long time to come.

And now, as the New Year dawns…
I wish that 2008 find you in Good Spirit all year round,
and that it will pour Faith and Hope in your Heart.
May it open up more Opportunities for you,
And lead you unto the path of Continued Success.

May God shower his choicest blessings on You and your family,
(with a special wish for your dad)
Good Health to Enjoy each day in Comfort,
Copious measures of Love from Friends and Family,
The Exquisite Beauty of Nature,
Wisdom to Choose priorities Sensibly,
Prosperity and the Best of everything,
Generosity so you may Share the above,
Overflowing Happiness and Abundant Joy,
and a Youthful Excitement at life's Simple Pleasures.

Take time to enjoy God's creation and live life to the full.

A wonderful 2008 for YOU my friend.

Best regards

PS. Although you have expressed your opinion about pious matters in the past (and I have great respect for your views), however I do hope you will accept these wishes in the spirit that it was given to you. Out of my heart.

Not too long ago you said these words to me "That heaven falls upon your head and invades your heart", but I think it already fell on yours and that is the reason why you have such a wonderful heart.
