    Another example of your creative eye. It is not the camera, but the imagination that is needed.

    whaaaaaaaaa-hooooooooo! and thank you for tooting this horn! Not only is it important to let the JPG community know about the kudos you have received, but your message is so filled with accomplishment & hope! I look at your pics, many of which are stuck in my head & I think will be forever, and then I take in your message and I must say - I am so proud of you and for you and your work. Congratulations Steve. And I think that you have really put your mind to this and made it happen, so please, don't go hide under a rock. Honk, Honk for Hogle!

    Well done Steve!. I find JPG has changed how I look at photos and how many different types of photographs there are out there, from real life to art and art imitating real life. This is an amazing site filled with amazing people. Well said!

    Congratulations and yes to WOW. I miss a lot of good images from my favorite JPG photographers. If I'm away for a day or two and/or can only spend a short time on line I can't find the time to catch up. Life continues and I've got a lot on the agenda. With all the new members and submissions this site takes chunks of time to navigate and I don't want to "short change" you guys. Bravo to you Steve.

    hey Steve,
    about the only thing I woulda done differently was to have called this:
    "Exploding Couch: A Study in How things go Boom"

    I'm also grateful to hear success stories... so much more exciting than the usual whining by artists about how unsupportive the arts community is. I've only been on JPG for a short while, but it has certainly re-sparked my love affair with photography and the world that we live in. Each time I log in and check out the new photos I am just amazed, such beauty everywhere... some only noticed by these artists. Congrats!
