Jean Papo 8/16/2003 10:29:13 AM

Thanks, Tim, Gary, Karen, Colette, Patricia and Connie! There are so many stunning and mind-boggling photos entered into betterphoto contest, I feel humbled to be among them! Thanks so much for your encouragement! Patricia, can I trade husbands? While yours was pointing out that fabulous scene for you to stop and shoot your wonderful photo "The Follower", mine was literally trying to drag me away with these encouraging words: "Zoo's closing, come on, you have ENOUGH anteaters already!" LOL! ;-) #169398

Jean Papo 8/16/2003 10:30:14 AM

Many congratulations on your win, Jean! #169775

Patricia Marroquin 8/16/2003 10:38:35 PM

Jean, I enjoyed your story about your husband, because it rings so true here as well. He'll say the same thing: "You've got enough photos of [FILL IN THE BLANK]! Let's go!" LOL! Glad you were able to get this one before the zoo closed. :-) #169921

Jean Papo 8/16/2003 11:06:22 PM

Thanks so much, Evy! And Patricia, well, I guess the grass isn't exactly greener on the other side then... ;-) #169927

Congrats Jean! #195337

Mary-Ella Bowles 9/16/2003 8:08:51 AM

This is such an AWESOME photo - how did I manage to miss it before?? No matter, I'm enjoying it now. It has everything - perfect composition and appealing simplicity, wonderfully subtle colors, humor, and just all around appeal! This was a well deserved win, Jean - many congrats!

(PS. I've learned to leave my husband and other family members at home, and I go to the zoo by myself!! Works MUCH better that way, lol...) #202050

Jean Papo 9/16/2003 8:38:29 AM

Thanks, Stephen and Mary-Ella. I appreciate your kind words! #202086

Elizabeth A. Zibas 1/18/2004 7:55:43 PM

Ahh yes, very nice Jean. Again simplicity at its best. The colors work great together. The composition of course is great. You are correct it does go nicely with "Wall Crawl."

But the best thing about looking for the image was being able to look through your great gallery. Now I am an even bigger fan of yours. #339366

Jean Papo 1/18/2004 7:57:33 PM

Thanks, Betsy! :-) #339367
