Those are wonderful.

That's a nice find -- I appreciate you telling us about it. Cameras and technology today allow people to take great photos, but it's the imagination behind the picture that is most important, and Jan's pics hit that most of the time.

I find #6 to be really touching, mostly because I had my first skydive this past weekend.

I miss you talking about the news. There is so much of it, and now so little of you talking about it. This hits me especially hard on weeks that the Daily Show is in reruns....

(Sorry to be off topic and dwelling on the past)

Jan Von Holleben is indeed a very talented photographer, artist and businessman.

What reader of Rey hasn't thought that they too could be swept up, Curious-George-like, by a handful of helium balloons? Nice to see the dream realized.

Pirate photo is so great. Fix that cutlass in your teeth and prepare to board!

Wonderful stuff, Ze, by way of bumblebee.

Cool stuff - thanks!

And rowlowmay - grow beyond the monkey, brother - (and if I have to explain this you wouldn't understand the answer)

Hey Ze - I keep trying to use the typekey thing but it tells me your not set up properly - is this something I'm doing wrong, something typekey did wrong or, god forbid , something you did wrong ;)

a few of these images were used in recent Gol Airlines advertisements.

If you always dreamed of flying, now you can.
Gol Airlines. Low-fare flights throughout South America.

hey, what are your thoughts?

Could it be theoretically possible that the human body does produce some sort of energy. And this energy is not a spiritulal/religious/mystical thing, but something that takes decades of physical and mental discipline to develop, and that is why it is mainly found in eastern cultures, because eastern culture emphasis physical and mental discipline where western culture largely practices instant physical satisfaction.
And so this energy is not supernatural at all but quite natural. And it has just never been encountered in western thought and science because western culture practices instant physical and mental gratification, and largely rejects strong discipline.
