    What I took from this article is:

    No matter who you are, what you are, what you have and what you can do, if you do not present yourself and what you can do in the right time, right place to right people, you're nobody.

    A one more thing...All technicalities written in this thead is a dry discussion about non important aspect of the study.

    Last comment...Comparing playing music in the Metro to picture hanging on the airport is completely incompatible, because music is a dynamic presentation, it caries in the space to you, pictures does not carry vision to you you have to search for it. I hope I making some sense what I'm trying to explain.

    Dear Peter,

    An interesting argument, because it illustrates very clearly how perception and appreciation vary. I'd say almost the exact opposite: a picture communicates immediately, because I tend to be more aware of my visual surroundings than my sound surroundings, whereas music (for me) has to be listened to deliberately. I really dislike background music; I can't work if there's music playing unless I can ignore it completely (so I'm pretty good at ignoring most kinds of music).

    Of course I can ignore many pictures and of course a piece of music can grab my attention, but the above generalization holds good for me.

    Cheers,

    R.

    That's why I can't have music playing in my darkroom. I have tried it, and found myself forgetting to agitate film, move prints to the next tray, or any number of faux pas, because I was too caught up in Beethoven's Ninth Symphony.

    I simply could not spend any serious time in the darkroom without music.

    I hesitate to state this on the grounds it means I am dating myself; but I have a difficult time working on much of anything with background music. Yet, it seems to me that most "younger" folk have grown up with the constant presence of background music such that they are just the opposite.

    I can develop film with music or the news on the radio. I can't listen to music while printing.
