Places of Rest is a collection of lovely photographs of nature, the sea, and people. Many of the photos are complemented with life-theme poetic verse. A mother duck teaching her young about the beauty of the sunset on the lake; the coming of autumn with falling leaves helps us to understand the passing away, and renewal, of all things; an elderly woman sits under a tree with a baby carriage next to her remembering her life and questions if it was lived fully and with purpose...Through its images and poems, Places of Rest offers the reader a sense of hope and assurance of a guiding hand in one's life. That we are not alone, and it will all turn out OK.

John, I thoroughly enjoyed looking through this book and you certainly have an artist's eye. There are many tender photographs in this beautiful collection and this is what struck me the most as I looked at them. I adore the wildlife especially and wish you lots of luck with the publication of this outstanding production. Cheers from Australia.

John, Thank you for your encouraging comment on my book. Great to know there are others on a similar journey and who make that sensitive link between heart, thought and eye. I see from previous comments that you are a great encourager. Well, encouragers need encouragement too! Good work. Kind regards, Rob

John. Thank you for your kind words about my book "Observations," but after seeing yours I can say your photography skills far exceed mine. And while our prose styles differ, you are equally as sensitive, thoughtful and insightful. You've done some good work and I wish you well in your endeavors.
