    Your photography DOES "talk" - and says "something new" with each exposure. We listen to it subconsciously. To realize what is happening CONSCIOUSLY is difficult, if not impossible. (Note 1)

    Your photography "speaks" - everyone's photography does ... it is only a matter of listening to a language we do not have to (cannot?) learn.

    Note 1: I'm not at all sure there is any difference with the spoken language. We interpret it automatically ... without the burden of having to stop and figure out the meaning of each word and syntax.

    Hmmm, good point! I mean, let's look at other human endeavors, like;

    Science - yup, nothing new to find there.

    Athletics - hoo boy, no sense sweating that much for nothing.

    Love - has been done to death over the ages...dump yer wife.

    Photography - holy crap is that still around? Of course in only 150-ish years photographers have exhausted every possible way to percieve the world...what a bunch of wheel running gerbals.

    I don't know what's been done before because I was probably not part of any of it, and that's a good enough reason for me to go out and take pictures and print them.

    Yes it's all been done.

    Sell your equipment and in disgust send me the money (you wouldn't want to keep money that was repulsive and came from PHOTOAPHIC EQUIPMENT) I'll see to it the money is well spent.

    as said in the good book

    it was true then, as much as it is true now ...

    but that doesn't mean people can't just enjoy themselves, does it ?

    I wouldn't say "out of control" necessarily. More like "a bunch of people making fun of the OP for being a little too obvious". Or something like that. Brought a smile to my face this morning, at any rate.

    Are you getting nasty PMs or somthing? You seem to have a serious chip on your shoulder. Art was being flipant for god sake.
    Technological society has succeeded in multiplying the opportunities for pleasure, but it has great difficulty in generating joy. Pope Paul VI

    So, I think the "greats" were true to their visions, once their visions no longer sucked. Ralph Barker 12/2004

    "The worst monotonous drone coming from a lectern or the most eye-splitting
    textbook written in turgid English is nothing in comparison to the
    psychological Sahara that starts right in your bedroom and spurns the horizon."
