Donna, may I have your permission to use one or two of the Cyprus feral cat photos for a feral cat TNR group non-profit fund raiser calendar "Feral Cats of the World"? We don't sell them ... only ask for donations. We only print about 50 of them a year for limited local distribution. If you have any questions you may email me at Thanks in advance ... love your photos. I have friends in and from Cyprus. ... Sheryl

Hi Donna, You asked what mountains were in the picture in my fall gallery. Most of the photos in that gallery including the one you commented on where taken in the Sandwich range at the Southern end of the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The mountain you are looking at is Mt Whiteface. Thanks for visiting my galleries and hope to see you there again in the future. I have looked more in depth at your galleries and am impressed with them, you compose very well and have been able to travel to some very neat and photogenic places. Keep up the great work and I'll be back from time to time to see any additions.

I found your name by searching information on Justin Smith Morrill. My father is a relative of him. My father was born in 1920. I would like to find a family tree. Would you have this sort of information?
By the way I love your bird pictures.

Hi, Donna,
Reporter David Corriveau checking in from the Valley News, where I'm writing an article about Mark Albee for the "A Life" column that we run in the Monday paper. I've been looking for photos of Mark and found several of him working on a project under "Vermont Men." If by any chance we could use one of them -- the one with Bruce, under "Best Pals" is great, and the one of him and Jim Conant also looks good -- with my story. I can be reached today and tonight (Friday, July 17) at 603-381-3978. If it's possible for you to e-mail some of the above (or anything else you think might work) as jpeg attachments, it would be great if you could send them to me at as well as copies to
Thanks for any guidance you can provide,
David Corriveau

Kathmandu, Nepal. Oct. 8. I am sure this is a strange request, but I just saw that one of the people in your guestbook went to the same summer camp that I did -- 50 YEARS AGO! Would you PLEASE forward this message if you can to Bill McCabe re: Camp Kaiora, Indian Pond photos. I can't figure out another way to respond to his comment in your guestbook. Thanks. Hilary Kammerer.
Bill -- do you remember Billy Taxter, Miss Sheridan, Bunny Van Valey, Terry and Joey Kahn, Jeff Reader, Wren, climbing Jacob's Ladder, Tim Lutz, Mrs. T., me?

Dear Donna Hollinger,

My name is Andre and I am an active member of a travel photography and videos Internet portal.
First of all, I would like to congratulate you for the great job you are doing as a photographer. I have to say your shots are really nice and depicting stunning scenic spots! I found them while browsing for some travel pictures.

Therefore, I would like to invite you to share your photo galleries with our visitors and community members.
Registration is free and members can suggest photo galleries, vote and comment on them. The photos suggested do not necessarily have to belong to the members suggesting them. Real authors are notified about the nomination through e-mail and are invited to join the discussions.

All you need to do for your photo gallery to be there is just give the link to the actual location of it and make a short description. In this way the visitors are directly redirected to the original location of the photo gallery, but the advantage of having them placed here is that, by expanding your visibility, you can receive feedback from other authors or travelers.

I know this sounds a bit bizarre when explained but please visit:

or in case you want to share some travel videos, you can as well visit:

and you'll see it's in fact very simple.
I could have suggested your travel photos myself, but I thought it would be so much better for you to do it yourself and then personally receive feedback from the visitors.
Hope to see you there soon!

Sincerely yours,
Andre Vogelaar.

Hi. I live in a forest environment in the far eastern corner of Washington. While hiking I often come upon a small (.5 inch) moth or butterfly that is lavender in color and without any other markings that I can see. It is not solitary; that is, they are always in a small group flitting about the ground. Do you have any idea of what they might be? My research in my insect guide and at your site has not turned up anything useful so far.

Thank you.

Donna: I was doing a search for my name on msn and as I scrolled down, I saw "Ellie, Bea, Margie....Nina..." and "Frank.." which caught my attention. I clicked onto the site, stunned to see my father as a three or so year old child, ring bearer in Nina's wedding...and then went into the galleries. The pictures you have of of Grammy (Mary Albrizio), Aunt Gilda, you father (Ann's brother) and others are beautiful shots. They are exactly the types of photos I've been asking around the family for "copies" to make and give back--your collection has rare shots (to my eyes) and great poses of Grammy, Popanon, my dad as a youngster, Aunt nice to see.

IT's funny how the universe brings what we need, when we need it (seeing such rare shots, and seeing you online. I hope all is well and that we may someday get together.
Frank Albrizio 01-May-2008 08:05
I came across the picture of my Aunt Nina and Uncle Tony's wedding online; my dad is the "little" ring bearer, Frank Albrizio (I'm Frank Albrizio, Jr.). It was such a shock to see this shot.
freda 29-Mar-2008 14:57
Donna, I'm really enjoying your photos. I'm assuming from reading some of the comments that you are in Vermont? I found your site through Google Images when I was trying to find very local (to me!) butterfly references. I'm in mid-Canada, directly north of Minneapolis. Books on North American Butterflies, Eastern Butterflies or even Ontario Butterflies, aren't much help to me as our area is very 'specific' and doesn't seem to fit into any of these classifications. I'll go back and really look at your photos now...they're beautiful!

Cliff Bernzweig21-Aug-2006 06:48
Thanks for the comments on my butterfly photos. Really, most of them are chance encounters or lucky shots. I hope you get a chance to see my dragonfly and salamander galleries (my real specialties).

You have some really nice photos here. I especially enjoyed your intimate pictures of moths in your house, spiders on flowers, and frogs in the water. Your raptor pics are gorgeous. I also loved seeing pictures of Sendai. I was there in 95 with a very cheap Fuji camera and a couple rolls of Kodak 100 (and I was only 15) so I didn't get very many good pictures at all. It was great to see the Masamune Date statues and armor and the temple at Matsushima again. (I can almost taste the succulent fried Matsushima Bay oysters)!

Keep shooting!
Guest 13-Jul-2006 18:26
Dear Donna,
Thank you very much for your nice comments.
You have a lot of pretty good photos in your galleries. I found them, because you use the Canon S3, too.
I'm quite happy with my Canon S3, and use it much more than my other cameras. Battery is ok for me - because I use recharabe batteries. I can make more than 400 pictures with these batteries, which is 4 times more than with my other cameras.
12 x zoom is fantastic, macro is fantastic, and picture made during sun was shining are phantastic as well.
But pictures, made with less light, are very granular. I think, that could be much better.
Nevertheless, I like this camera, and I woud buy it again.
Kind regards,

I spent three years in Camp Sendai 1951 1954. I loved the town and people. If I could afford it, I would love to take my wife to Sendai. Thanks for your information and wonderful galleries.

Thanks, Donna for the comment! I love your shots! You really have an eye and I think I can learn a lot from you. Nice to meet you and look forward to looking at more of your work!
Pablo Yez02-Apr-2006 05:17
Thanks for the nice comments. Had a blast looking around your galleries. I'll have to came back and check out what you are working on.
Heidi and Ulrich Burkhalter04-Mar-2006 09:34
Yes I like my Cannon PS A520 camera for what it offers for the price. But the picture usualy come out a little soft for my taste. But it seems that in close range like close ups and macro it does a really good job.Its a good first time camera on wich to learn photography.But if I had the funds I would choose something more advanced like the Cannon S 2 IS or Pannasonic FZ 5 with Image stabilized lens, since I like to take the boats I build out to use as a photo taking platform on lakes and strems but a tripod is amost useless since it still would transmit all the movement of the boat. Yes it can be used as a movie camera and it does pretty good at it. The only thing about this camera that I dont like is the lack of speed in action photography its extremely slooooooow in writting the picture to the SD card.With flash its even worse.But I'm glad I bought it, it really opened up a new way of seeing Gods creation and the world.And its small enough to have it allways close by as a constant companion in one of my pocket.
Heidi and Ulrich Burkhalter04-Mar-2006 09:13
Thank you so much for the kind comments that you made on some of my pictures.But I have one question. What do you mean by making the picture bigger. I'm new to digital so their may be something I'm missing.
Heidi and Ulrich Burkhalter02-Mar-2006 18:25
Thank you for your comment on one of my pictures.Its been a while but I started a gallery of pictures who have been crittiqued by PBase members.
Charlie Lentz29-Jan-2006 15:34
Thank you for your comments. The Pileated Woodpeckers would normally be a once in a lifetime experience but it has occurred in each of the past two years between the end of March and late May. What you are seeing is a pair of Pileated's. I assume that they are the same pair from year to year. They are only seen sporadically during the other 10 months. I have gotten within 10 feet of them on occasion when they are engrossed in their respective behavioral antics. And, I do visit the Eastern Shore periodically, primarily Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. You have a great and quite impressive selection of galleries.
Carolyn 22-Dec-2005 00:55
thanks so much for sending these wonderful images. It certainly brought back wonderful Rome and Amalfi memories. was it 15 yers ago???? It's not possible and I had hair! Perusing some of the other galleries, I adore the Greenland pictures too- equisite colors and shapes. I particularly liked the captions you put under the photos-Etruscan, Pompei-Remember it was closed when we went??? Much love, many thanks Carolyn
Donna Hollinger18-Aug-2005 19:05
Graham, the 20D can be noisy, however I am acclimated to it. and I don't have a 300D to switch off to. But now you have given me a good idea. We both [Peter and I] have trouble with dust particles because we change lenses...that's not so much fun either.
Graham Tomlin10-Aug-2005 07:05
thanks for the comments on my photo's, regarding the photo of our cat that you commented on, she is jumping for a palm tree frond, she will run after anything at the moment because she is still a baby, just over a year old. i think that your galleries are excellent, i noticed that you use a 20D, what do you think of it?, i think it is an excellent camera, but a bit on the noisy side, my wife uses a 300D which is basic but very quiet.

Wonderful galleries. As a Vermonter, I'm drawn to the Vermont images, especially the simple moss covered granite in the woods, and the rest of your work is fantastic. Thanks for sharing.

I am always delighted to come back to your site. You have a unique visual eye which is well expressed through your lens. Simply fabulous.

Hi Livi, What's up in Hawaii? Saw Phil and Peggy not too long ago in Arlington with Uncle Henry, Kathleen and Patty. We had a fun time. My mother moved in this winter
and she's been tagging along too. Did you see my Anthony's Gallery, couple of really good photos of your Dad. We have lots of snow here. Aloha! donna
livi 25-Feb-2005 23:25
hi Donna!
Aloha from hawaii. It was really nice to be able to see all these great pics of the family! Thanks for posting them. Livi :)

Thank you Donna for stopping at my on-line albums. As you noticed, Jordan has a lot to offer for visitors, with well diversified tourist facilities to cater for their needs and pleasures.
Autumn and Spring are the best seasons for visiting.
In reply to your questions, Jordan was under the influence of the Great Roman Empire, who left many historic cities and other remains. If you read the Gospels, you will notice that Jesus lived in our part of the world under Roman rule.
Congratulations again on your web-site. Your photos never fail to warm my heart.
Kind Regards.

Wonderful pictures!!! I really like the ones of the Buddhist temple in Sendai. The Buddha statues, etc. were beautiful. Was wondering if I can use some of those photos in a powerpoint presentation. I plan on using it as background pictures. It will not be for any commercial or advertisement purposes.

Linh =)
Mansour Mouasher16-Oct-2004 06:56
Thank you Donna for visiting my on-line photo galleries and for taking the time to express such wonderful comments. Much appreciated. I'm still trying to find out the name of the artist in question. Will get back to you in due course. I enjoyed browsing through your diverse and beautiful images. Flowers and nature scenes are among my favorites. You're such a talented photographer. Keep up the good work. Will keep checking your web-site.

Hi Donna,

I'm glad to know that you enjoyed your trip to Japan! The pictures are wonderful, and you captured essences of Japan beautifully. I like the photos in Sendai very much, because I have never been there. ^_^

As for the photo, you are wondering if the image is Buddha, I'm not so sure that this is the image of him, it could be the image of other "Hotoke", such as "Amitatabha Tathagata" etc.

Let me know more about your trip, when you have a time.

Take care,
