Happy New Year

By NDODS    
A H A P P Y N E W Y E A R Message

Here is wishing all of those people who have commented, criticised, slated, slandered, loved and hated, my rather eclectic style of photography over the last year a very Happy New Year. Without ePZ many of my days would be so very intolerable, you have all got me through some rather tough times, to which I thank you.

Regards Nathan

What a great image, Nathan Grin. A sincere thank you for all your help and support during very troubled times earlier in the year, things are not over yet, but a lot better than they were. I wish you a New Year (and more) of health, happiness and fun photography, not forgetting a little bit of good weather, too Wink Carol

A superb image of those magnificent looking turkeys.
wonder why people use the expression 'It's a turkey' to describe
something inferior? Must look up my Phrase and Fable!
hope 2013 will be a Happy, Healthy year for you Nathan.
Watch out I think Kizmet might be competition for you!

You, Nathan, have been original, creative and very generous with help and comments. I have enjoyed your company here. You inspire me to submit a real photograph from time to time along with my string of curious snaps. You have been through some bumpy times as I have. All part of proving our power over getting older. Spring is not far off with more sunny photo days to look forward to. May more original ideas visit us often. TG
