A great big thanks to everyone. Once again Ive been made feel so welcome and really a part of the whole thing (despite this terrible time zone thing that's deliberately tormented me this go around), … so many people I could mention.

Ill miss this and all you people I've still never met. Please keep in touch.

Maybe we'll meet at some point but if for some reason you find yourself heading to Australia let me know and I'll gladly make a nuisance of myself.

…Farewell

Your pics amazed me day in and day out. You are a force to be reconned with and a master of emotion. Thanks for being you and sharing it with us! I wish you the best!

I have said it before and I'll say it again - thank you so much for your participation. Having international support legitimizes this whole ordeal more than I can express. Basically, it tells me that it's not just a small group of weirdos here.. but a small group of weirdos EVERYWHERE that Get It. Thank you for that.

On a non-Australia note; your photos are always remarkably engaging. Even if it's just you with an eyelid half closed, it's oddly gripping. You've got a special something going on and I hope it doesn't stop with this event.

If you still ever feel like having a website put together for your art.. I'm game.

Every time I look at your shots I feel like you should be out hunting lions or something. I bet you carry a really big knife with you at all times.

You are an inspiration. I always look forward to finding your brilliance on my screen in the morning... so in some ways the time difference makes all the difference in the world.

I think you're the best subject on here. If you come to any of the states let me know. If I manage Australia I'll look you up, so don't abandon twitter / flickr unless you give me another avenue to connect.

I second Mackle 's suggestion, make stuff for us to buy, you are too creative not to share it

zackle says:
Is it weird for me say that I will miss you, even though we have never met?

Thanks for being the underrated, understated genius that you are. Your photos have always been a highlight. Take a stroll through my favorites and it becomes more obvious.

Take care, friend. Farewell for now.

I REALLY want to come to Australia. I already play a Cole Clark guitar and John Butler Trio and Cat Empire are some of my favorite bands. And Ned Kelly is one of my fave photographers. Seems like reason enough.

I will miss you and your photos greatly. I will never forget a photo you took of yourself in the ocean (or someone) taken from above which was taken during last years MM or Whiskerino. You're photos are truly remarkable.

you had incredible shots and some of the views in your pics are spectacular! You sir are the thunder from down under as far as I am concerned! Good journey, or mabye it would be more fitting to say Good Walkabout! (ok enough of the Australia Cliches).. thanks for the great shots!!!!

Grower&Shower says:
Your photos have literally taken my breathe away, from Whiskerino 07 to now. You're the main reason i HAD to do this stache thing.

I'm still trying to get to Tasmania to "intern" at a Distillery down there. I hope our paths will cross if that ever happens.

Take care.

Without even seeming to try, you utterly destroy all expectations with your photos. I do hope to get back to that region of the world one of these days. When it happens, I'll let you know. Keep doing what you do and be well.

You've shown 100% awesome, 100% of the time. Thanks for setting the bar so high. You and a couple of other folks on here forced me to be more thoughtful/creative/intentional/etc.

I'm looking for an excuse to make it to your timezone.

Dschonn says:
I would try to describe what you've meant to this whole thing, but others have already summed that up quite succinctly. I'll just say that I'm glad I got to see the a little bit of world through your eyes. Even your simplest shots are extraordinary. That's something I've tried to emulate, with perhaps varying degrees of success. I'll be sure to track you down if I'm ever in Australia.

I mean I know Australia is really big, but it's hard to imagine visiting the country without going to Sydney.

Pip says:
I've always wanted to go to Australia, and since knowing you I feel like I've had the best excuse yet. I promise someday we'll come down there and hang out.

You've been so incredibly inspirational these few years, creating some of the all time iconic images on these pages. Your constant unique creativity have baffled and impressed me to no end. You'll be dearly, dearly missed.

Be well, and take care.

Ned, I have high regard for your photo skills and have loved following them over the years. I even bought a Canon point and shoot camera after seeing one of your photos which you shot with your CHDK camera. I've faved and 5 stached many of your shots. Take care. See you around Flickr.

I'll surely hit you up for pestering if I ever make it to your island. I got a greeaaat idea. You fly to Atlanta. We'll meet up for a collab pic. Then, we'll set out on a road trip cross country in my Volvo wagon stopping along the way at various popular stache concentrations ending with hale 's residence. we'll be so bat-shit crazy by then that we can both pester hale till he begins hurling cats at us. when the cats come a flyin we know it's time to fly out. we'll sell the wagon for our flight costs and head home.

Well Ned. I would like you to know you are one of my favorites around here. I love the way you play this game. Your images are always simple and absolutely intriguing, and that is a total win in my book.
Thank you good sir, enjoy your lopsided winter.

I have no idea when, but as long as I have breath, I intend to get down there to see you. I'm farther away now, but I hope to move back that direction. Either way, I want to have beer with you, man.

ThatGuy says:
I agree with all previous comments. You somehow managed to express so much in what to some may have seemed very simple portraits. I don't know how you do it, or if you're doing it at all. I might just be you and therefore out of your control. Either way, it was true pleasure to witness it. Thanks for letting us in.
