Haris,

There is no reason for you to apologise for your comment. Clearly there was no offence meant and I was in no way offended, you simply wrote what you felt. I wish that I were 33 again and could look forward to another 30 to 40 years of making photographs. I sure that you will achieve in photography more than you set out to do especially if you always look forward and work hard at it.

Aggie,

Your description of my being a "teddy bear" brought a smile to my face for my wife sometimes calls me Paddington after the bear for I wear lots of smocks instead of jackets.
