Hola Chris, después de tantos años de contacto se me ocurrió pensar que era bastante tiempo para dar un testimonio acerca de tu trabajo y no solo de tu trabajo sino de tu bella personalidad y verdadera amistad. Puedo decir que hace bastante tiempo comparto tus fotos y que son cada día mejores y mas bellas, que has ido al macro con gran tecnicismo y que tus trabajos son inmejorables, pero en mi caso, tengo gran orgullo de contar con tu amistad no solo en flickr y se que eres una persona muy talentosa y bastante genial, que sabes valorar la amistad y también el trabajo, tengo orgullo de contarte entre mis amigos por tanto tiempo y decir que no solo eres un excelente fotógrafo sino un gran amigo y un gentleman. Te aprecio y admiro querido compañero y espero un día llegar a hacer una bella toma como tu. Grande Chris Bolton, mi flia y yo te apreciamos mucho. Buena vida y muchas gracias !!!

About time to do something about this great and as well kind, photographer, Chris Bolton....whom I've known for a rather short time but he's one of those who shows his personality straight away. Here goes the list:) 1. Great shots and sense of humor. 2. Extremely good contact who is more than generous...gets to the point of what he likes re: your photos and gives out group invites...to the groups he thinks appropriate for the photo. 3. So helpful regarding problem solving when I had elbow tendon problems when using the computer. 4. Also helpful in not only telling what gear he uses but providing websites for the lenses. "Thank you Chris for who you are....you're a wonderful flickr friend, appreciate you lots!!.......Pat
