This is for a close friend of mine Dave, best known as (Heathcroft). Dave is a magnificent Poser artist and creates some of the most amazing fantasy art you will ever see. His Castle Stories are always a treat and among my favorites. They are always filled with countless colorful characters and the story brings them to life. He has a great sense of humor and always manages to add a little bit to his stories. I'm grateful for his friendship to me during tough times and consider myslef lucky to have gotten to know him so well. This story is such a treat and I only hope I can bring it to life as well as he did for me. Thanks for listening,
Fish Tales (For Heathcroft): When Dave was six he lived in a hotel close to the sea. He was a fan of fishing and loved to watch the old men gather and fish off the rocks of the sea wall. One August Dave was given a fiber glass fishing pole as a present while his uncle Ralph was visiting from Lancashire. Neither of them knew much about fishing but wanted to go. Everyone came outside and his Father Malcolm stood quietly watching and smiling alongside his Mum Eileen, as if they both knew a secret. Dave's sister Maureen was laughing at him and kept him distracted while his Uncle walked down to talk to one of the men who had caught several fish. His Uncle Ralph hired one of the younger men to swim down and put one of his fish on Dave's line without him knowing. Pretty soon Dave felt a mighty tug at his line, and pulled for all he was worth. Almost instantly out came a huge grey mullet thrashing about on his pole. Dave ran around showing his family his amazing catch, and was so proud. It was only years later that they told him the truth about his first fish and this fishing tale.

everything about this image is a treat. the details of town life happening around this little family is great. the townsfolk, the car and even the dog are wonderful touches that help bring this to life.
your story drew me in. the descriptions made me smile, I can see this scene so well trough your words, too.
the best thing about this is how happy the little boy is. true happiness from the heart because a few people cared to make his dream come true.
bravo, dear Dave, this is a wonderful memory you brought to life.

You never cease to amaze me! Look at this stunning scene. The wondrous and beautiful sky in the background, rolling hills, a car parked there, buildings perfectly placed, just enough people in the scene and once more, expressions on the people whom you can't help but smile at. Especially the little guy who caught the fish that was placed on his hook! LOL, that - this - the whole thing is just wonderful! What an incredible person you must be to use Poser this way, when so many have no idea of the priviledge that is ours to have this avenue of expression. How you express the things that mean the most to you, grips my heart and soul enough for me to know - there is still REAL people in this world with hearts of GOLD! Like you! I truly love it! And one more thing I forgot to say ............................. WOW!
