Hello best TE friends
2013 is a special year for me, for I joined TE on December 15th 2003.
I want everyone say thanks for ten year, to bring a visit to my pictures.
I wish every visitor an excellent health, and maybe peace for all people in world.

I became known through my canal pictures since ten year on TE, I want use a canal picture for these anniversary.
I hope that everyone this appreciates.

I knew there were some great photographers here, since then I have learned much, but during the last 10 years many of these fine photographers have left for pastures new, why I don’t know, but I always wish them well.
2006 was perhaps the top year for TE, since then everything went downhill fast due to various circumstances, perhaps due to some management changes, perhaps members became tired or fatigued or perhaps they just fancied a change of scenery?
As a loyal member, I have commented on many people’s photographs, sometimes positive and sometimes negative, but it’s not good that I have to repeat this, it still seems that some members are jealous, I really don’t know why because no one becomes rich on TE, but I only become much wiser with each passing year.
I never travel away, I have never taken an aircraft, I have never made a real trip abroad, I always try to photograph in my region, and to take good pictures. I like to be in my own home every night, but I'm happy in these circumstances, perhaps I’m missing that knowledge of travelling, but I’m no less happy for it.
I have met many good people and made many friends on TE during the last 10 years and that makes me happy.
So, December 15th is a holiday for me, but here I can thank all the members who have visited my photos, I say this from deep my within heart.
I wish all members good health and no worries for the coming year.
