I'm doing fine Marcus.
I haven't been anywhere near as active here myself, compared to when I first joined this group. I even let my donor status slip this year.
I got tired of chasing administration for the recognition of donor status. This way I don't have to chase them for that little red star :)
I probably only put one image in about every one or two weeks now a days. But, I still like to come in and browse around and see what everyone else is doing.
Hope to see a few more from you in the future.


Marcus Armani Marcus Armani   {K:36599} 1/9/2009
ANDRE! How are you? Great I hope, Well Its been a long year between shots, but I do hope to have a less eventful 09 and be able to spend time on UF again.
Yes I speak to Yamil Often and to say he has held down the fort is a understatment, I dont think I will ever reach his 3000 plus posts in my lifetime.. but that is dedication.

well where is everyone? You leave for a year and half the users disappear LOL... Hope your having a great new year so far and it continues that way..
All My best ..


Marcus Armani Marcus Armani   {K:36599} 1/9/2009
Hi Ed, Thanks for the comment. I hope your having a happy 09 so far.....


Andre Denis Andre Denis   {K:66437} 1/9/2009
Hi Marcus,
Good to see you back with another great image.
Yamil has been holding down the fort while you were away. :)
There doesn't seem to be as much activity at this site as there used to be. I'm not sure why exactly.
Anyway here's wishing you a belated Happy New Year, and hope to see some more "Bird In Flight" shots from you in the future.

Great shot Marcus.

Wonderful lighting.

All the best,


Marcus Armani Marcus Armani   {K:36599} 1/8/2009
Hi AJ, how are you, hope the new year is starting out great and continues! Well I do plan on posting on UF again, it actuall has been over a year between photos, life can be a mess sometimes, but things have settled down and i can get back to photography. I have kept in touch with Yamil and he has more than held down the fort with over 3000 bird photos.
I did stop by you portfolio here and there and recently was mezmerized by the 4 shots of the colored paint drops, very eye catching stuff. thanks for the nice comment.
All my best..

Hey, it's the Bird Man! Good to see you here, Marcus - I hope it's not just a fleeting visit. This excellent shot reminds us what we've been missing these last months...

With best wishes for the New Year,


Robert Chin   {K:22282} 1/8/2009
Coming from you 'again'just made my day.Re Ir,you will the colors have changed quite a bit due to a wider influence which I think is for the better.I don`t post here regularly but I don`t at
the main reason is time.
Re Jinggoy switch was just kidding,he knows what he wants with that analytical mind of his.
Great to see you posting again Marcus,
Keep them coming!
A Better 2009.


Marcus Armani Marcus Armani   {K:36599} 1/8/2009
JASON! really great to hear from you! I hope to be around again this year and that the drama of 08 Is behind me.
Man you have to be one of the best all around photographers I know, portraits , landscaped (day and night), nature etc.. I would love to comment on all that i have missed but when i finished it would be 2010 :) .
Happy New Year and all my best ..
