    I think you and I probably have very different styles. It'd be so damn boring if everyone shot the same way. ^_^

    Perhaps. I don't like the word style either. I'm going to be a terrific grumpy old man some day...

    A curmudgeon. Nothing wrong with being a curmudgeon, as long as you retain a sense of humour. Dull grumpy old people are the pits. Actually, dull grumpy people of any age are the pits, doubly so if they are politically correct.

    Life's too short to give a crap about the way others use language. If you're making photographs, do the words really matter?

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    Can you get good fish and chips on your side of the Atlantic?

    Well, depending on where in the Great Britain / Ireland you're from, I believe yes!

    I think Steve is alluding to mushy peas.

    Photographic terminology and words you hate.

    They also sell those where we go for fish and chips, and I like them so much that I usually buy them for on the side. I doubt British or Irish fish & chips purists would do that, but I'm a Swedish person living in Minnesota, so I have the freedom to do whatever I want.
