I was never cut out in my younger years for the hardships of international photojournalism. Anyway I am humbled by the story of Rena Effendi. The comforts of capitalism kept me confined to the cozy 48 contiguous states. My kids are nearly grown, and while I don't feel the need to cover anything on another continent, there is plenty here and in this hemisphere that needs a light shown on. Too many photo-turkeys here on APUG worried about what to photograph with, what film to use. Women like Rena Effendi took the nearest tool available in the budget they had, and got to work. Enough talk... more work. I think if you have 200 posts on APUG and no work posted you should go away... I don't really mean that but I am puzzled with people with 1000's of posts and not one photo to show for it. Ok flame me now. <<< this originally a cheeky admonishment to myself that this post should not be taken too seriously, flame away if you need, but don't hate>>> Cheers from my corner of the planet... (and I am now working on a self funded, and soliciting other social projects).
