    RIP Wobbles

    AP Member Wobbles (John) has been battling cancer for the last couple of years. Sadly he passed away a few days ago.

    Many will remember him on the site, till illness saw him use the internet less and less.

    my thoughts are with his lovely wife, Leanne, and his family.

    Constructive Critique of my photographs is always appreciated
    Nikon, etc!

    Ricktas,

    Its messages like this that separate your site from the rest. Your bringing together like minded people and adding value to everyones lives, good on you mate!!

    and yes RIP Wobbles, lets hope he now has a camera sensor with a huge dynamic range to capture the bright after life light .

    Cheers

    All the best Leanne and family.
    I remember Woobles as an active and valuable member when I joined AP. He offered good advice IMHO.
    The world is now just a fraction less I suspect.

    Condolences to family and friends. A least pain free now, and watching from above... Very sad news indeed.

    For those that knew John. Today he would have been 50 years old.

    My condolences to his family at this difficult time.

    It may be nice to put up a photo of him to add a face to the name. The profile pics are tiny. So many times we get lost behind the anonymity of social media and forget there are real people behind the keyboard.

    I know there are rules regarding posting other people's photos but I'm sure one of the moderators can find something to put up (perhaps with his wife's permission)

    His Facebook profile is here

    https://www.facebook.com/john.wroblewski.3110

    There seems to be a nice selection of his work up if anyone wants to take a second to view it.
