    It also rhimes with "fracture" as in "digital is a fracture of the quallity of film" or "I got a fracture by using the mouse too much", etc.

    I personally kidnap my photographs. I grab them, gag them, tie them and throw them inside a dark room...

    I don't capture my images with a digital camera, I just toss a net over them.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    did you know: H.C Andersen, the famous danish fairy teller once saidhe was one of the first important people in Dk that really loved the new technique)

    in a sort of quote to a friend:"did you know, that in the south, the sun is so strong that a plate can drink the light".....

    he used the non-danisk word "inddrikke" which means in non-english(as in I don't know the word) in-drinking..

    I kind of like that sentence.

    to drink light.

    I've got to go with Dave on this. It is just another medium - a new one at that. The people working in it are still developing their own vocabularies and sets of values. I really can't get too upset about cross over terms or critical of odd sounding new terms.

    That alot of the digital work I see I think is crap does not surprise me. Hell, go look at a lot of the photo sites on the web - there is an incredable amount of just plain awful work around. I just pass it bye.

    They are doing something different. It neither threatens nor diminishes what I do. Give them a hundred years or so and see what they come up with.

    Just for the heck of it, the word "photograph" means "light drawing". I guess I think of the way light more or less "etches" into film emulsion as more like a drawing than stimulating photo sensors in a memory array.

    Inddrikke... I like that. I suppose that in English, it would be "drinking in", as in to "drink in the beautiful scenery" or to "drink in the warmth of the sun".
    The term "photography", (light writing or light drawing), has always made me a bit uncomfortable because my handwriting is awful and my drawing abilities are childish at best. Drinking, however, is something for which I seem to have a natural aptitude.

    Lewis Carroll of "Alice in Wonderland" fame was also an early inddrikke... uh...-er.
    I suppose that a fanciful imagination is a valuable adjunct to photography.

    Hmmmmmm, food for thought.

    To take the lyrical a bit further: I have always disliked the term "taking a picture". As in: go there, take it, leave.

    I see the whole process more as a "receiving", or "getting" a picture. As in getting it, or making onself available to the situation at hand, and the situation more or less dictating where and when the picture "is", and the photographer being there to receive it.

    Kinda the other way around. The picture taking YOU, not you it. Hm?

    End of philosophical rant.

    Always nice to be here!

    Unintentionally contrary to what Dave said, the problem will be resolved when the comet hits. None of our work will turn out to be archival after all, and life won't go on. ;-)

    But, that shouldn't dissuade us from having a good time until then.
