Beautiful image, nicely composed and framed --- the Minolta is what I used in the 60's and 70's :)

Yesterday, I wondered what Louis would say now. Probably the same...probably an optimist.

A lovely photo Berny. I thought you might like this quote which is attributed to Louis Armstrong:

"Some of you young folks been saying to me, 'Hey Pops, what you mean what a wonderful world? How about all them wars all over the place? You call them wonderful? And how about hunger and pollution? They ain't so wonderful either.' But how about listening to old Pops for a minute. It seems to me it ain't the world that's so bad, but what we're doing to it, and all I'm saying is see what a wonderful world it would be if only we'd give it a chance. Love, baby, love. That's the secret. Yeah. If lots more of us loved each other, we'd solve lots more problems. And man, this world would be a gasser."

So true, Keith! Many thanks for the quote. Only we, the human beings, make it to this place, which is sometimes terrible and frightening.

A good quote from Keith and it's good that Satch has been commemorated with this statue. In pre-digital days, I always used Minolta too.
