Happy Holidays !

For many people 2016 was a challenging year.

For many 2017 will likely be just as challenging and holds many uncertainties.

Regardless, here is hoping everyone has Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!

For many this time of year is a good time to pause and appreciate life and loved ones.

Let us celebrate Life, Love and Living a Good Life (even for those who don't shoot with rangefinders).

Stephen

Happy Holidays to you too Stephen and to everyone else on rff.

May the new year bring days filled with health, joy, love and happiness... and possibly an M10.

Thanks Stephen!

And....my best wishes for everyone at RFF. I know the coming year will be a challenge for me, so I should get my "positive energy" out to everyone now, while I still can.

And I should remember that "challenge" doesn't mean doomed.
*** I just wish I had more energy to throw at it ***

Thanks, Stephen. I appreciate that this fine forum is open to all photographers.

Best wishes to all, whatever your holiday, and a rewarding 2017.

Yes we do, or at least used to. I still do. And I do it meaning no disrespect to anyone who may not believe as I do. I hope they will not be offended. I won't be when they have holidays and wish me happy times.

So to those to whom it means something, Merry Christmas! To those to whom it carries no special meaning, or is contrary to their beliefs, then Happy Holidays! I wish all RFF members, and also all the world, a really great 2017.

Stephen, I also want to thank you for hosting RFF. I wish you and your family the best always.

I'm also wondering why it's called happy holidays. Other countries other habits.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!!

I think I'm excited for 2017 because I'm planning to visit places (Japan being one of them), and of course, this means shooting more photos!

Hi,

We say a lot of things but happy and merry usually start it and then a bit about the new year.

But a week or so ago, hidden in the Christmas cards in a shop, I saw one that said "Warm Winter Wishes" and the alliteration made me think of a lot of rude variations on it...

Anyway, Happy Christmas to you all.

Regards, David

Be it lighting candles, waiting to hear hooves on the roof, or what ever, I hope it's a happy, healthy, safe, and fun Holiday Season for everyone.

Especially this wonderful family of people here on RFF. The gifts of knowledge, wonderful pictures and motivation you give me through the the year are priceless.

Thank you Stephen!
