Good morning to you all and a special good morning to everyone at the party in Prague who, by now, may be fighting hangovers through their smiles...Perhaps it will help to think of those hangovers as "through the lens" hangovers!
For the rest of us who were not able to attend the festivites in beautiful Prague, I should like to present to everyone in Prague AND to the rest of us these wildflowers found growing along The Bushkill Creek here in Easton, PA and just a short walk down the road from our condo. I present these as a token of my love and appreciation for everyone in this beautiful family called AMINUS3.... Surely, this must be the best family in the world. If we all got together and started discussing our personal or political pilosophies, that might turn into something resembling a bar room brawl scene taken from a cheap American cowboy movie, but our mutual love and respect shared through photography is what makes us a wonderful family. And, like all families, our respect and love always prevails over petty things like politics. We're more concerned with bringing peace to the world through a shared enjoyment of photography.
So enjoy your Sunday wherever you are and know that we love you.

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)
- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.
