Luffy: Hi guys!Many many Thanks to Pim and his team for the great dives we did in Minahasa Lagoon resort! A la carte divnig we have never experienced before, this is one of the many + amongst others that make the differences! Others are, professional teams, always smiling and extremely helpful, they love divnig, and find underwater what you are not able to find yourself like the pygmee seahorse! The divnig sites are really beautiful, diversified and for sure everybody will find what he is looking for! We wish you many many happy safe dives!

Visits to Glacier, Tetons,Yellowstone and Mt Rushmore were terrific. I have create a mac web site but wonder what software you are using to manage your images and web site. Thanks

jannavaneekelen: hello, this is the Netherlands having taking a brief look into your album. Like your travelling way of feel and the photo's and guiding lines show a feel, sensitivity and skill that I like. Particularly like the picture's that you show from the Provence, France and that the best hour of the first Europe-trip was spend iin Amterdam! Come to see it more, as you show us more! regards, Janna

Diane Murphy: Nice photos! I have to agree with your friend about going to Ireland and photographing the country and its people. It's so beautiful and enchanting.
If you can't make it to Ireland, come to Chicago for St. Patty's Day. I'm sure you'll find many Irish drunken fools to photograph! The parade itself is a must see.
Your sis, Diane
February 21, 2007 2:19PM
GERARD McAULEY: Hello,
Really good pictures,would think it is a prof person taking the pictures,not only are the pictures technically great,you have introduced several emotional compositions,all good.
You should try Australia,nice people (white & indeginious),Variaty of Landscapes and emotions from the tropics to the south also east & west.Large country nearly as large as USA.
Then you should try Ireland where I was born before coming to the Land of Oz (Australia) in 1973 and have not been back since.In Ireland you can tour on a good byicle as the country is so small but the scenery changes every 29 miles as does the acccents of the natives,also extremly friendly and honest people.
February 2, 2007 5:17AM
Suzanne: I can tell that you have a great time taking pictures! Your pictures look great and they really make me feel like I'm there with you.
January 21, 2007 6:07AM
Lionel Beck: Many thanks for allowing me to tour Chicago with you. Probably as close as I'm going to get unless a big lottery win allows me a third visit to the USA!
Best wishes from across the herring pond.

January 12, 2007 2:16PM
bestnana1: Hey Sam, man you have some great albums. It has been a while since I've checked Picturetrail. I need to add some more myself. What type of camera do you usually use for your pictures - zoom features, megapixels, model, etc. I have an Olympus Camedia D-490 Zoom and both Smartmedia cards are just about gone and I can't find any more to fit it. My zoom is also limited and I don't like the fact that delay is too long especially if I try to take an action shot. Is there a good digital camera to capture action. I usually have to use my Canon Rebel with 800 film for this.

Gerald Bircher: We went to San Diego twice in 2005 The first time was in May and we went to the Zoo and Sea World. The second time was in November when our cruise ship stop in San Diego. We went in an old trolly ride to the sites of San Diego.

Ian Watson: Hi Sam,
Great set of photos! Looking to buy a digital EOS and came here from your Amazon review to see the results. Have spent many happy weeks on vacation in San Diego, California and the National Parks of the West so it was great seeing all those places again. Are you still using Canon kit now?
December 11, 2005 3:55PM
Lionel Beck: One of the best collections yet!
November 24, 2005 6:16AM
Lionel Beck: Loved the Lorikeet! Also I've got to go and open a bottle of wine now - got me in the mood. Not Californian today, but I frequently buy it.

September 21, 2005 3:31AM
Jeff: Hey Sam, thanks for your comments on my galleries. Went through your SD photos and they are outstanding, rich in color and compisition. I have just started doing landscapes and editiorial myself (taking a break from sports and models) when I have the time, your images drive me to get out there more!
September 16, 2005 8:41AM
Lionel Beck: Thanks for the tour. Loved the night shots!
September 7, 2005 5:33AM
Bob: SUPER pics, Sam!
Man, that Rebel's doing an amazing job for ya. I used to shoot with an old Canon blackbody A-1 and hated to put it on the shelf when the digital stuff came out. Canon sure has camera-makin' figured out, eh? Love the color saturation in your shots. Right now I'm using a Sony DSC-V1 Cybershot that I like a lot for its small size, but it sure doesn't compare with a good SLR.
The San Diego stuff is very interesting. I've never been there, but if I get a chance to some day I'll hop right on it! Loved "Bun Diego". :-)
I'm heading back to Europe in 18 days. Gonna be there the entire month of October so I'll have some new "Europics" up sometime in November.
Hope to party with ya in A'dam some day, bud! :-)

Maritza: Your pictures are amazing. What lenses do you use. I recently bought a rebel xt and I'm interested in getting a new lense. Which do you prefer for travel photography. I love the vibrant colors in your pictures. Do you photoshop them or are they straight from the camera.
August 24, 2005 10:58PM
Josie: I think your pictures are absolutely amazing. I got onto your website from a testimonial u left on amazon.com. I am just a Mom wanting to get good pics of the kids growing up and have a Canon Rebel 2000 EOS SLR camera and want to upgrade the lens so that I can actually see the kids at a concert without taking out the magnifying lens can you help me please.
Like I said, I am no pro, just a Mum who loves taking pics and want a lens that will do a good job.
Thanks for your time and allowing people to see your fantastic pictures.
August 16, 2005 2:51PM

Lionel Beck: Greatly enjoyed your Spanish and Italian trip, although you were a completely mad bull runner. Thankfully you came out alive. The Italian pics brough back the best memories for me - my wife and I were there the year before you, and we included a visit to Siena (also Florence and Pisa). See http://www.lionelbeck.btinternet.co.uk/italy.htm

You sis' Diane: Awesome shots from the SD Zoo. I'll be going there this weekend. Do I get some of the proceeds if someone buys photos of me in it? Just checkin'....
June 30, 2005 7:09PM
John Gilmore: Hello: I join other guests in raving about your photos. I'm curious, are you a professional photographer, because your shots say you are. I'm also curious about your camera and lenses. To shoot such marvelous pictures, I'm guessing you have a lot invested in equipment. I hope to hear from you. Maybe there is hope for me. The best.
June 23, 2005 11:31AM
Eduard Labadia: Sam,
Your photo-journalism, honed thru
a few years' posting and learning experience in this photo album site, has significantly picked up steam and this is no longer anything
"small-time"... it's HUGE and still
getting larger with elan. I'll skip
the "keep up the good work" cliche..
just do what you love most, Sam. :-)
June 19, 2005 1:01AM
Jeanne and the AZ Country Cousins Band: Hi Sam! What exciting places to visit right here in the USA ... thank you for sharing these as usual great albums of your trips and adventures!

March 21, 2005 7:27AM
Tito Eduard: Sam,
I'd been sluggish lately answering mail as the workplace picked up steam since February- meaning my usual cybertime when I get home had been limited to just reading, sans the interacting.
I believe it's about time you've hosted a photo blog but not necessarilly abandoning your Picturetrail account. With a photo blog you would have more leverage as a host and that should bring your graphic presentations a big leap to another level. My hat's up to you, Sam.... and Ooohhh.... you're really a beeeeeer buggy!! Heh Heh Heh
March 18, 2005 11:05PM
maiapeaches: Your pictures are absolutely beautiful. I was wondering if you ever sell any of the prints? If so I'd be interesting in purchasing a few. If you are intersted please email me - maiapeaches @aol.com

Close to retirement, I shall try to visit some of the other places you have already gone. I would like to meet you either in person or on line! Write sometime. Bob
February 27, 2005 5:59AM
Lionel Beck: Ye gods! You have more albums and photos than you can shake a stick at. I've bookmarked the site for a return visit, otherwise I'll be up all night looking at these great pics. So far I've only done Scotland and Paris. Happy memories for me. My wife and I have stood next to that early "ICBM", been up the Wallace Monument, been to Housesteads at Hadrians Wall and also stayed in Paris (what a great city!), been up the Eiffel Tower, rode the Metro, and we have a nightmare memory of driving our car round the Arc de Triomphe in a trillion lanes of ill-disciplined traffic in the pouring rain! Thanks for the memories!
February 26, 2005 7:26AM

I have some Yellowstone pics on picturetrail.com/bestnana1. We have a timeshare; therefore, we usually trade out and go other places. You need to get on over to Gatlinburg and the Smokies for some more great photo ops. Keep up the good work.

Tito Ed: Hey, Sam,
It took me ages to finally explore what's beyond your Hawaiian Punch.
For good reasons. I've checked it out
myself on the flesh (just back from Waikiki, from Sept.1-7. We stayed at the Ocean Resort Hotel (fronting the Marriot). I'd build an album too on similar subjects later just as I'm now more focussed in helping out with our media promo preparations for our forthcoming digital photography exhibition in LA on 9/17-10/16. Great adventures preserved in colorful photography you've once again shared with us.

Nordine: Bonsoir mon ami !
I was copying some of the pix you took this summer, and I just realized that I never signed your guestbook.
So here I am, signing and writting that this summer in France was AWESOME. Meeting new friends,
seeing old ones, and having lots of drinks, fun and memories.
It was great to be among the members of this summer trip again in San Diego last month !
So what and where is next ? Thailand ? Japan ?

T2 Ed: Sam,
This is your T2 Ed from Jersey City. Good camera, good shutter button decisions! I'd say, you've beaten that older sister of yours with these ones. :-) Hehehehe... keep your eyes open, beautiful things are on the air, Shutterbug.

iceman: Hey Sammy, great photos. Which camera did you use? Some of them would make great postcards. I'll be in town Oct. 17 -26 we should get together and you can tell me more about your travels.

You're next, buddy!

Your beautiful sister who traveled with you to Sco: The website could have been improved if you had just added a bit more photos of me! As Jason put it - AWESOME! Your website had wonderful captions and interesting facts. We were so fortunate to meet terrific people in Scotland and more terrific people in France who came out to the wedding. We made some wonderful memories and got to experience many intersting things. Will never forget the "godfather" in Generac let alone the "chasing of the bulls". Next year is Italy, Sam. Danny and I would love to have you as our tour guide. But then again there's Andy! Please mark your calendar for Spring Break 2004.

Maxime Fossard: Dear Sam,
Thank you so much for sharing your trips with us. Actually I didn't know that you guys went to Scotland before we all met in France. I've always wanted to go to Scotland and Ireland. Watching your pictures made me feel like packing and take the first bus to the airport.
I am really happy that I met you as well as your sister and Brother in law. I hope that you guys had a good time in my country. As I told you, you are always more than welcome to my house if you want to check out Japan. I live right in a the middle of Tokyo so it is very convinient to check out the Japanese capital.
I wish you the best for all and I lokk forward to hearing from you again. Please, let us know when you update your picture albums.

K9murph: Hey Squishy! You survived! I wish you had handed your camera to some poor soul to take a picture of you running from the bulls. I would have loved to see that kind of action. So who were all those people in the pics? Alcoholics you met at a bar? Were those pictures of Cinque Terre? Didn't you have a friend jump off a cliff from that area? Would have loved to see you done it too. Anyhow, next year Sam. I will have the priviledge of traveling with you and meeting all sorts of alcoholics. Love ya!
July 19, 2002 10:37PM
divat: Awesome pictures! You're lucky that your buto wasn't speared by a bull! You crazy boy.....I'm surprised that you could run from the bulls after all the beers you put away. Glad you had fun! Take me next time! ;0)

April 1, 2002 4:54PM
phantomgirl: Nice pics bro! I live vicariously through all of your travels since we can't right now!!!
March 23, 2002 7:25PM
Where are the action photos of your snowboard trip? The photos are weak and you need to get some air. Your shoulders are good for 80 more dislocations.
