    Ahoj Fando. Máš hezký fotky a inteligentní web.
    S Jirkou Zajícem se znám už dlouho. Pracoval jsem ve Vietnamu v roce 1995, to byla ještě krásná, stará Hanoi. Mám ji nafocenou na diácích.
    Je to droga to focení viď? Mě to sežralo skoro celý život, strašný úsilí a peníze. Po rozvodu mi moje ex zašantročila ty nejcennější diáky. I tak zůstaly tisíce fotek, většinu ani za roky nevidím. Až natáhnu brka tak zaniknou. Ale měl jsem kamaráda (před třemi roky se zastřelil) ten v sedmdesátých létech chodil v Pošumaví s Pentagonem Kiks a cvakal krajiny, potoky, prostě dokumentoval. Tyto fotky mají dnes velkou hodnotu protože Pošumaví se hodně změnilo, a málokdo má tolik srovnávacího materiálu. My blbci cvakali hezké, náročné záběry, které dneska proti těm jeho nemají žádnou hodnotu.
    Přeju hezký svátky, a dobrý světlo , Jirka
