    How about POOLS; Pictures Out Of Light-sensitive Substances.
    I've always felt uneasy about the qualification (weasel word?) Analog. It concedes that there may exist a form of photography that isn't analog. There isn't.
    Photography, the word itself, invented and defined by its author Sir John.F.W.Herschel, 14 March 1839 at the Royal Society, Somerset House, London. Quote "...Photography or the application of the Chemical rays of light to the purpose of pictorial representation,..". unquote.

    “Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”

    You broke the code!
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I'm interested in filtering the lists I view, not limiting other poster's discussions. If I can't see the post it doesn't mean there will be a lack of discussion. I think a means of personalization of the forum interface is actually a step toward leniency of those types of discussions. If the 'analog or die' purists don't see the post because they set a filter, they won't alert the moderators for removal of the thread

    The word digital should be mentioned, and done so a lot, as we are a community and as such, need to make sure our community upholds its charter. Nothin wrong with tellin a newby that a hybrid technique or scanning a Kodachrome slide and converting to b/w digitally is not within the charter of apug...."why don't ya take it onv'a to DPUG....now carry on..." I say it all the time when the line in the sand is crossed....nothin with doing so, just be polite....

    I tend to think ice that the analysis you did might have a ton'a noise in it....like folks saying "take yer digi-tread-somewhere-else"....

    Oh damn! Me too!
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    It's hard to decide which acronym is uglier.
