Letters about 'Photographs of the Day'

Dear Mr. BenDedek,

I saw the photograph from that you displayed on July 3 with the caption, 'Carbon emissions up in smoke', and just wanted to drop you a line saying that I thought it a very poignant caption.

The real tragedy behind this affair is that such drilling for oil was ever allowed in the first place. We have become like gods, thinking that we can control everything around us including nature itself. Why are arrogant in believing that 'everything is under our control'.

It just takes a tragedy like this, or, God forbid, a nuclear accident to undo all the good that we think we are doing to improve the environment. Personally I think it is God's way of reminding us that we are the creatures and not the creators.

Thank you.

I am writing to thank you for starting up the Photograph of the day section again, because I do enjoy looking at the photographs. I want to say however, that I hope you will think about including more local photographs.

While I do like your Chinese photographs, I think that since the newspaper is a local one, that having a majority of photographs of Maine would be more appropriate. From the local photos I have seen, Maine is surely a beautiful place and should be showcased more often.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the comments. Especially for Janet I changed today's planned Photo of the Day to one that Milt Gross put in his article entitled: Wind towers, not flying saucers
