  7. Bob, I am seeing so many unknown birds here in the Marin Calif wetlands that I hope to show you [ and to identify!]

    This Shag looks familiar. Webbed feet?

  31. That's a great series, Bob. I love the water in the images. Was it naturally 'monochrome' of had you been at work in Photoshop? The way the yellow pops is great.

    Thank you for the introduction to the Otis Taylor with Anne Harris clip. I wasn't aware of either of these two, and have now had a look around. I was even more amazed by Otis Taylor's version of Hey Joe accompanied by 11 year old 'Taz'. That young kid is amazing, with a maturity in his playing of someone five times his age!

    Best wishes, Bob - - - Richard

  32. Bob can teach me the power of nature. Because Bob is so strong as I couldn't ever imagine.

    I admire your art and your power, my friend.

    You are always on my mind. Because my words are stronger from me.
