    The B&W images sure look analog to me with <'s, ground negcarrier et al, but then again that can be faked :smile:

    OK, SO I'm waiting for the coffee to finish soaking in the pot,
    and I'm a little bit edgy this morning
    so excuse my attitude

    I don't get it.

    why, when we find a picture site of honestly fine personal work
    are we not talking about the work itself
    but questioning whether it's
    "Faked Analogue" ?

    I mean, REALLY !

    This has gone too far,
    and HAS to stop.


    now, the coffee

    I posted this guys work because I found it to be very good. Some of the best I've seen in a while.

    I found him on www.altphotos.com while I was cruising around over there.

    Dear people,

    don't you image junkies read anymore or what? The guy has a statement on his website in text, where he says he's a film freak and tells what cameras he uses! Hassy and Holga.
    What more do you want him to add, that they are 'real' cameras, not plastic bodies with digimons inside?

    The entry through the "electrolite" link isn't very text oriented though, is it? I had a very short time to look and I always look at the work first and the explanation of it later. The site is heavily geared toward image navigation (in what's sometimes called a "mystery meat" style), and the "about" link isn't very prominent. The "about" text link is also so small on my screen that my wife couldn't have read it.

    Lee, I did not mean to be offensive in any way. It was meant as a jokey ironic remark, no acidity there. I hope you didn't misread that.

    The photographs are really great (apart from those commercial ones that lack spirit) but I also like the website design as it looks like one I have planned for mine.

    Not at all. No offense taken whatsoever. My comments were intended to be more about web site design than anything else.

    But you're also right that we're probably mostly a visually oriented bunch anyway. I saw the tell-tale frame notches and the way the camera was held in a window reflection (who notices that stuff?) and didn't even go for the "about" text. And you're right that doing that rather than reading is at minimum a "quirky" way to look for the info.
