    At the neapug workshop last weekend, we had two well known photographers on hand: Rowland Scherman and Jack Bradley. Rowland, being the first peace corp photographer, plus photograher and friend of dylan, procal Harum and many others and Jack a personal friend and photographer of Louis Armstrong..and other jazz greats. Both, before the past couple months, were thinking film was dead. Now they are both excited although Jack is at least in his 80s but called and wants me to drop over to look over his old prints and equipment...and also talk photography. I'm going to try and convince them both to join apug.

    for Rowland, just enter his name in a search engine.

    Yeah, and don't keep those guys to yourself too Drew! Bring'em out to the next NEAPUGers event. I know I'd love to see their images.

    Regards, Art.

    Drew, I echo Art's thinking -- I'd love to see their work and have them discuss it. You see, that workshop is really beginning to pay dividends.
