:)As almost every second comment one can read in the so-called blogosphere is a superlative such as Excellent! - Oh my, that is absolutely gorgeous. - Amazing. - Stunning!! - Gosh, that's soooo cute! etc. etc., it's not easy to praise f.e. a photograph that is really extraordinary / special.:)So what can I say / write to make a difference? Oh well, what about this one?Certainly not the worst picture you took so far, Jams. Chapeau!
I've certainly taken far worse Sean!
