Some of you may remember this photo that I took last July on my trip to New England. This one was taken in Rockport.
Well, 9 months later I get this comment on my flickr.

This was my response...

All that aside, I added a link to your gallery underneath of the photo.
Have a good day and thanks for enjoying my photographs!
I'm still a little befuddled as to what he thought he was trying to prove.
Just needed to vent. Thanks.
