Nice to see you Pierre..arrrhhh no dont think you look alike... but looks like you been to the the same barber. :-)..same hair dye..LOL..LOL..

Thanks for sharing John.


I just choked on Dawn's comment, I must use the same hair dye too. Well done John. TFS,

Bonjour to both of you from India:
Now to your question about looking alike, I think you both look kind in your eyes, and welcoming smile on both, but you have a green shirt John:)
Thanks for this post, and greetings to all TL there from this little Indian TL man!
David Amarjeet

Hi overthere, nice to meat ... uhhh ...meet you all !!
And yes, you certainly look the same because there are a lot of similarities, for instance you both have: two eyes, a nose, a mouth, etc.
Have a nice time!!
greetings from a rainy holland,

HI John,
You were in Baton Rouge??? That is only 90 miles from here!!! Lol! How was the food in the red stick restaurant? Very nicely captured-great skintones and colors, thanks for sharing the fun.

Zal ongetwijfeld wel weer een feest zijn geweest.
Groet uit Helvoirt

Hello Johnny and Pierre,

Hmmm...look a like...no you do not look alike. And looks kinda same nature. Good smiling faces, colors and skin tones.

Saw the complete gang in WS. TFS


Hi John
On the photo you look alike, in person you look like twins lol (°U°).
It was a very enjoyable evening, finally meting the TL members but the
evening was to short....times flies when in good company.

I must prefer the workshop version for some reason....(°U°)

Hi John,
Lovely portrait.
I think it was nice TL meet with many new shots.

Well done

Bonjour John,

That always pleases to me to know the face of another TL member, then here I am filled, you but I know you and PierreFrigon. As for much, I find you look alike. Identical twin photographers.

And the workshop enables us to see Lucbus which we miss but one is finally happy that it follows its way and its dad Pops71, Photograph2u, OeilMagique, you are the only one who don't smile on the photograph, what a pity. I like to see you smiling and I know that it's only one mere chance knowing you, you shouldn't have remained a long time like that.
TFS to allow me to put a face on the name.

Ton amie Corinne

WOW John! What a great WS shot of all these wonderful folks! That Pierre! He is a looker! Are you twins??? Wonderful shot here, really like this alot! SO good to see everyone had a nice dinner and no food fights!

Piere zou inderdaad je broer kunnen zijn John.
Heel goede foto. De meisjes zullen het een 'lieve' foto vinden.

Hello Sir John,

This is a beautiful self portrait in double. Can I call it a nocturnal composition? The workshop image looks like a family portrait which is excellent. Beautifully composed, expressive and powerful. Well done my friend.

Many thanks for sharing rejoice moments of your life.

Help needed John -
Do I suffer from terrible senior moments or did I visit a picture from your eldest granddaughter and did you remove it for some unknown reason??
Please reassure me that I'm not getting a bit senile...
Hi PF, hi JT,
bye PF, bye JT.

Hi John, lovely selfportrait with your friend, I like also the ws, I'm Happy to see photos of TL friends, splendid composition, very well done, ciao Silvio

A great shot of two TL friends, liked the workshop too showing all, looks like you had a great time! :} Don
