Great SteveH 2020-03-30 20:58

Hi David, As you say, it is hard to capture birds in flight, especially small birds which flit around quickly, so you did well to capture this one. BTW - I see in your profile that you're related to Lowell Thomas. I have a first edition of "India Land of the black pagoda" and "TE Lawrence by his friends" on my bookshelf. cheers, Steve

Default To SteveH: LOWELL tHOMAS

Hi Steve
Lowell and my grandfather Carl grew up in the mining towns of Colorado. Carl became a civil engineer and Lowell went his way. His granddaughter and I are close. Much lately being done for the Dali Lama in India related to Lowell and his son's visit to Nepal n the late 1940's. They both had quite an adventure. Thomas name for me goes back to the early 1600's in the US. That Thomas married Danial Boone's mother's sister and the family was interesting ever since. I am honored you have some of Lowell's books. The "With Lawrence in Arabia" book is great. Lowell did not like the interpretation of the David Lean movie - however overall for cinema/sound/acting effects were wonderful. One of my favorite films. Take Care

David Thomas
