    I was in a bookstore the other day and saw a magazine called (t)here in the photography section.

    I flipped through it, but it seemed to be a collection of random photos, with few (if any) words at all.

    Their website is equally spartan. Now I'm curious - what is it supposed to be exactly? The styles of the photos didn't thrill me (a mixed bag, really), but the lack of explanation has been bugging me (maybe it's designed to do that?).

    Anyway, just curious if anyone else has seen this magazine and/or knows anything about it.

    I can't be asked to click a link and not get a new view or have to wait for the flash to load. I'm not a flash hter, but the implementations I've been seeing of late are just the pits -- this one being worse than most.

    In another era one would've equated this (t)here thing as a Not Ready for Prime Time Player.

    Who cares?

    I have a tendency to look for greater meaning in things than is readily apparent - maybe it's just a bunch of random photos in the hope that it's "art".

    Sometimes it bugs me that I might not "get it" - this might be one of those times :smile:

    mabman,
    I can appreciate your point, I just get so frustrated when a site is both a puzzle and slow.

    There's no "there" (t)here.
