Not My Photo!!!


I am a member of the “ Ugly Hedgehog” photography forum, and every so often , well probably quite often, there is one photo published that is outstanding.

The link comes to my email inbox each evening about 9.15 p.m

Last night the one that captured me in such a special way  was

“ Canada Goose” taken by Cliff Hope of  Toronto

  I emailed him, asking if I would be able to have his photo on my blog. He said “ YES”, the hugest generous “YES”  and I am overjoyed to be able to show you all this stunning photo. The quote  below says it all about his generosity,

Thanks so very much Cliff. this was indeed from  your  heart.

If you ever travel to NZ, please come and stay with us, I would be honoured to meet you, and your lovely wife Millie .

The link to Cliff’s website is below.

Quotation of the day,  from Kahlil Gibran,

“ You give but little when you give of your possessions.

It is when you give of yourself that you truly give”

Greetings from Jean

Yes, truly a great photo, and Phil has sent me an email, in reply, such a generous man, like many on blogs and forums, sharing knowledge, thoughts, support and more. The quote fitted him so well. Cheers from Jean
