    I just wanted to say how much I value the people on this site. Although I know its primary purpose is photo critiques etc it is also a place for encouragement and support. I've had an awful 2 weeks, my husband has left me and my son as the result of his affair. I felt dreadful and couldn't even think about taking photos. On Friday I was so miserable I wanted to 'talk' and posted a photo saying how unhappy I was. It mad me weep when turning on my computer on Friday night there were 27 messages of support, encouragment and advice. this morning Bob(delta100bw) has even put up a photo for me to cheer me up. Sorry if this is rambling but I wanted to say a big thank you to all and say how it helps to have something postive to focus on. Jane

    Glad the ePz community was able to help you a little Jane. Just don't expect to get any EC's out of sympathy. :0)

    Thanks Ian! I can blame my lack of EC's on the fact that Pete's avoiding complaints of sympathy voting! LOL Jane

    Jane, I'm in full agreement about the lovely people on this site. I hope the kindness of others helps you to get through this awful time. Talk anytime if it helps, ...debbie@dvdreams.co.uk...

    Maybe that could be an offshoot for Pete.
    He could set up a board where people with the same sorts of problems can get together and have a jolly good talk about it. Sometimes you feel like you're the only person in the world going through this sort of thing. Finding out there are others who not only have been through it but have come out the other side with a big smile, gives us perspective.

    Or maybe a digi dating agency Pete!

    Well the new Off-Topic section of the forum seems as good a place as any to have a chat.

    I hadn't looked at your portfolio before, but now I have to say that looking at all your beautiful flower shots certainly cheered me up!

    Sorry to hear of your problems, Jane. It seems trite to say this, but things will get better. Good luck to you and your son.

    Kind regards


    Oh, lovely image.
