I recieved these two emails this week. I can't do them because I don't
have the plants, don't have a fish with those diseases, or keep
goldfish, and I can't take very good slides. :) I asked if they wanted
me to forward this and they said ok. So I thought one of you on one of
these lists might be able to. I think I'm sending them both.

I would appreciate if you would send this list to your fellow aquarium friends. We do have high standards, and would want to see only good slides. We prefer originals rather than copies. I would provide our FedEx number if these people have the photos we need, and if they would agree to the terms of the contract that I included below. > > Thanks, > Harry > > Delivery of your photograph(s) to Meredith will indicate acceptance of the rates and sample contract with its stated terms and conditions set forth below. > Contact Harry Priekulis (Assistant Art Director) 515-284-3848 about questions regarding the rates and contract.

Ortho books is producing a book on Water Gardening. We are in need of four slides. Usage fee is $125 for each. 1. Plant portrait or combination shot of lavender musk (Mimulus ringens or/and alatus. 2. Plant or flower portrait of an Ohga lotus. 3. Portrait of a sick fish, koi or goldfish with "pine cone" disease or popeye, or other type of fish with ulcers. 4. Tight shot of a school of guppies (from the side).

If you cannot provide these slides, might you know someone who could help us.

Thanks, Harry Priekulis Assistant Art Director Ortho Books
