    What about overtime in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals?
    Let me ask you something. If the rule you followed brought you to this, of what use was the rule?

    I was thinking MJ's shot over Craig Helo but I feel dirty and shallow now.
    Then again, after much thought, I think I cracked it...it makes money disappear real good and fast. Magic!

    I think a print emerging in the developer is the nearest you get to magic and some of my 16 year old students think film photography is cool.

    Photography and movies are like magic and I would call photography a memory machine instead of time machine. I agree with Blansky it's the only medium that can freeze time.

    Photography, a process that can perpetuate both truths and lies for generations. Quite a magical and scary machine to use, with viewers hoping there is a contextual guide there with them to separate truths.

    The magic is in the doing, not so much in the process.
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    First time I saw a print develop in the darkroom and the first time I saw a Polaroid develop both seemed like magic.
