    I'm so un-hip that I don even know what WWAAD or any of the other acronyms mean. I don't mind questions, and ignore comments not worth noting. I shoot for me, not for anyone else. No one has to appreciate, approve of or understand what I do. The only question I worry about is "how much is that worth?"

    ...especially without knowing whether one is in front of the prop or behind it!

    What Would Ansel Adams Do I presume, but I didn't see the acronym. Did I miss that somewhere?

    It seemed to be going forwards so it must have been turning the correct way!

    A long time ago I learned two things, that whatever I think other people think is never going to be what they actually think, and that what they do think has has nothing to do with me. The whole premise is a giant waste of time and energy.

    I didn't know what this meant either initially. I'm guessing 'GW' is Garry Winogrand... or George W. (Washington, Washington!)

    Seen on a T-shirt: WWJD (What Would Jesus Do)
    Seen on South Partk: What Would Brian Boitano Do? (because Jesus and Santa Claus were fighting)
    Photography: WWAAD (What Would Ansel Adams Do)
    Photography: WWGWD (What Would Gary Winogrand Do)

    Should a person worry about what others think, or persue the path that you know is the right one? So: Adams is dead, and even if he wasn't, he's not looking over your shoulder giving you a bunch of direction. Make choiced for yourself, and set your own course.

    I cared to the point of insecurity about what other people thought at age 23, never got girls with those Nikons on my shoulders. Now at 45, I feel much better about life than when I did at 23 and don't really give a toot what other people think. A few years back I attracted the interest of a sweet young woman while my XPan was on a tripod and a Leica around my neck...we have been blissfully married for nearly 2 years.
