The 18-year-old is especially great.

You also have a good eye for bonsai pots (during the time my father did bonsai, I was a potter and had the supreme honor of making him some pots to his specifications - those iron-blue opalescent glazes are magnificent on the high iron content clay bodies).

And your photos are tack-sharp. Nicely done all around.

Great job Marshy! On the trees and the photos! Your attention to detail and patience will pay off in most everything you do. DG You surprise me every day with another hidden talent! Since you're such a renaissance man we may have to call you Leonardo from now on!! Leonardo DGehman. Has a ring to it don't you think??? LOL

Your on to something Dawg regarding Leonardo;

If Falco's theory is true, then artists were using optical aids centuries before they were widely developed. He got the idea from reading artist David Hockney's article in the New Yorker. Hockney came up with the original theory that artists as early as the 15th Century were using lenses and other optical aids to create realistic renderings. Falco and Hockney began collaborating, studying hundreds of paintings and applying Falco's scientific knowledge to the question. The answer, contends Falco, is that painters of the stature of van Eyck, Caravaggio, Velazquez and Vermeer used precursors of photographic cameras centuries before the invention of chemical fixtures in 1839. Charles Falco is a Physicist and optical Science Professor at U of AZ.

Very, Very nice shots, Marshy. Now I know what bonsai trees are. the blue pots are great, I like the coloring.

DGehman you continually amaze us with your knowledge, and Dawg is right, you are a rennaisance man...I like that, Leonardo DGehman. that has an awesome ring to it.

Pablo, you must be a historian, that was interesting about Falco.

and MrBlue, that is an arresting avatar, LOL.
