"…Hey, Deborah, great for great to hear your submission there about the details of your photo drop. Must have been a great party. Yeah, it's amazing how we people can look at the same image and deduce a range of different things from it. It wasn't until you started describing what you described, the details and the impact of that simple observation that I connected with it in the same way as well. So here's mine.…"

"…Saturn is not visible in this photo. It was just further out, but it was also visible to the eye if you saw it that day. For me, anytime I look at the sky, night sky, it just fills me with awe. And this particular alignment of the stars and planets are just a special day. So hope you enjoy of the photo.…"

"…So here's my challenge question to anyone looking at this photo. Is that fog missed, or is that smoke from a fire? And where is this located? So there's the challenging question for you. So I guess that would be my response. I just wanted to use something that was my I don't have anything that's abstract and more challenging unless I pull it off the Internet. So I hope that works. Have a good day. Bye.…"

"…And I have no clue what geographic phenomenon caused it, because I have seen that river in nearly all forms, raging during monsoon to normally rippling during the summer. But this evening was quite special, trust me. This photo, this is like two or three years ago. I've never been able to capture the river again like this. That's it.…"

"…And what I did while I was drunk in the pool, I yelled out to my wife saying, who am I? And then began walking from the edge of the water all the way into where I was submerged. And she said, you're a man that's walking? And I said, no, I'm Virginia Wolf. And I have my hands in my pockets to signify big rocks with this. That's really pretty much it.…"

"…These photos and their stories just light me up. It's so interesting. I'm going to reply to the one just ahead of me here, the Virginia Wolf one. How the photo reminds you of that story and how, you know, knowledge of her ending of her life and replicating that connects you back to this photo. I just love the circular aspect of it. Thank you for sharing. Really cool. Wonderful.…"

"…Almost as if you don't want to use your phone to take a photo, because the photo just does not do it justice at all. I think that in terms of my own spirituality, that was probably one of the closest moments in my life or a moment in my life I felt closest to God. Whether or not you believe in God out is one thing. Whether it's a person or a feeling or an idea, any of these things.…"

It sounds like there's some amazing photography and stories to go with them, but it's been very cool plugging you into the car as I drive, just listening to the voices all over the world, like radio.…"

"…I didn't want to touch the camera. I didn't want any movement. I was on my way to a place called Hart Lake. Hart Lake is 8 miles one way. Most of it was uphill, not all of it. I was completely alone. I only met one person. I saw them at the lake where the photo was taken, and then I didn't see anybody else the rest of the day.…"

"…I can recall as a kid when I was, I guess, in grade seven or so where it was really hot. And I can remember on the news the newscaster is talking about us being in a drought and being rather young. I thought, oh, my God, are we going to run out of water? That's the only time I can remember it being liked. It seems different. It's just so brutally hot right now. Anyway, that's what my picture is.…"

"…One of the things I really had fun doing when I was playing golf with my brothers was we riding around the golf cars, drinking beer and I never got my brothers before, so it was a lot of fun. I did notice it was that the more beers I had, the better my golf game got. So I don't know, I guess that's laughable at best. Anyway, I wanted to share the photo with you. That's kind of a place where my brother lives.…"

"…So it was odd to me to see this dumpster just on the side of the road, up in a mountain, just miles and miles away from actual civilization. But this dumpster had a great view, and to throw something away and this dumpster means we're not going to leave it in the Earth. We're not going to leave it well, not here, anyway. It's going to go someplace else, but it's not going to destroy this ecosystem.…"

"…And Deborah, it's so funny that you saw an inanimate object as having a great view. I think that could be an entire thread on its own because it's so magnificent when you see something that is out in the middle of nowhere, seeing something, but not really seeing it, but you're like, God, I wish I was that dumpster. I can't afford a great smile to my face. Thank you.…"

So I just wanted to I don't know who clicked the link and if you have, then you know all this already, but if you haven't, I'm going to just give a little run down, a quick rundown of what's actually been occurring at Eagle Pond. Like I said, there's usually just a couple of small families. I think there were two sets of adult swans with their signets. All those swans you can see is a new flock.…"

"…They never had it before. It's amazing, isn't it? Before it would have been lamps or fire. I loved all of these pictures. There's so many great ones. The dumpster with the great view. The rugby, the guy. Rugby players are so tall, so heady, so huge. How are they lifting him like that? It's amazing. The lake house. What amazing place to live. I like all of these pictures. They're so cool. And the fan.…"

"…Hey, Deborah. So this is my photo. It's my view from my apartment window. Only part of it, actually. There's another nice perspective if I turn a different way. But during the sunset hours, this is basically my view. And I chose this photo because it's really interesting. I find it super cool that there's, like, this reflection across the way from me basically caused by the light hitting the building the way that it does.…"

I couldn't see the butterfly, but I could definitely see and as well as perfusion seconds, I saw, like, a cowboy with a big hat, which is that is what stood out to me the most before you said it. I could see it.…"
