These are some kind words people have said about my work reciently. This is attached to my Amateur Photography and Modeling page.
This was posted on a newsgroup, as a way to introduce me to a newcomer.

I think all of us who have known him for a while (I first met him in February 1990) consider John to be the proto-geek... Everything he goes into, he becomes expert at. He just mentioned in passing the artwork he does by writing a programmatic description of the image -- but you have to see some of it to appreciate the magnitude of understatement involved here! It reminds me of what M. C. Escher would have done had he used a computer as his drawing tool... Before that he was into photography -- and I gather that he's still in that up to his ears (which are even farther off the ground than my own, and I'm 6'2"). I once earned my living as a magazine photographer, but his work far outclasses the stuff I did... Programming, of course, goes without saying. Anything you want to know about state of the art programming techniques, he can tell you -- but unless you're at almost the same level of expertise, you'll have trouble comprehending the descriptions <g>. I'm no slouch in this area, but John often loses me when he gets into the stratosphere! Kevin, boB, (and of course you too, John) -- am I fairly close on the verbal description of an undescribable personality?
