RE: LMAC #46: The Arctic Camel

in Let's Make a Collage2 years ago

Dear AG,
Every time when I see shaka's new picture, I wonder what you will make of it. What a great idea to put a camel in the ruins landscape! The insight into the creative process, from the first concept to the final result, is very interesting.

Everyone who gets closer to your work will not only enjoy your creativity, but also appreciate all the information you provide. I just have learned many new and amazing things, not only about the arctic camel.

All the best, until the next time when you surprise us again with your ideas.

Dear Anna,
Thank you for that positive feedback. I love the blank slate of a photo. When @shaka offers these he makes no rules and invites us to let our imaginations roam. That's a universe in which I am very comfortable...I chafe against rules :))

As for the camels...it was all new to me. When I read about the fossils I was intrigued. The biggest challenge was winnowing down material so readers wouldn't get bored. Pictures help (once again, your posts set a good example).

Looking forward to your next blog, which is also always a surprise, even when you offer a preview as to subject. You've got the eye of an investigator and artist, captured with the skill of a photographer.

I hope the pesky virus moves away from Vienna, and you are once again able to fully enjoy your city.

Affectionately,
AG

Dear AG,

That's why I appreciate your work so much. You learn about new topics thoroughly and pass the information on to the readers in a very attractive and interesting way. This is how I came across topics I had not yet focused on. It's a pity that there are no extra points for this. The new photo is already out. I'm curious about the realization of your ideas.

Thanks for the wonderful compliment! I've never seen my work in this way before.

There are extra points. There's you, and your wonderful comments. There are the kind people who appreciate the effort. This is a treasure for me :)

Thank you for the notice about LMAC...I have seen the picture and the wheels are turning. An interesting weekend ahead.

I just checked to see if your new blog is up...can't wait to see what you have in store for us. Have fun writing and exploring...most of all, stay well.

Dear AG,
My new blog is out and it's on a topic I think you might be interested in.

In a few days I will visit my home town. I'm looking forward to the mountains, the fresh air and above all to seeing my family again.

I wish you a cool breeze in steamy New York. Stay well my dear friend. 🌻

Affectionately,
Anna

Dear Anna,
I just visited you blog. Oh my heavens. What can a history addict say about this? The wonder of those relics! The Tabula Peutingeriana--I'm also a map addict. I enlarged my screen several times so I could see the details. Wonderful insight into life in the late Roman Empire. And the delicate papyrus...the way you trace the evolution of language and script.

It's hard to say I have a favorite of all your blogs, but this one comes near the top. The past lives in these artifacts. These were not works of art created to impress, but tools of every day life. And so they bring us closer to the people who created them.

That's a great description of how papyrus was made. Makes me wonder about the first people who sorted this out and used the invention for recording transactions, thoughts, histories.

Thank you for a spectacular trip to the distant past. Tonight, as I'm preparing to sleep, I will enjoy the pictures on my iPad. What dreams may these images bring?

From a peaceful corner of New York,
Affectionately,
AG

Dear Ag,
Wow, what an enthusiastic feedback on my post about the Papyrus Museum, thank you so much! Of course I had to think of you when I wrote the article.

Knowing you are a great history lover, I think Vienna could be a place of desire for you in this respect. Here, history comes across you at every turn, not only in museums. I 'm glad that I can pass on my enthusiasm for ancient cultures in my blogs. If I get then such a wonderful feedback, it makes me very happy and motivates me to continuing my journey through history.

With thankfulness and great affection,
Anna
