    I'm sure I've seen plug-ins or iPhone photo filter apps that come pretty close to that kind of nomenclature :-(

    No, there will be no photography in 100 years as our universal greed hatred and ignorance means we will carry on as we have since our beginning - This means our human population will suffer a collapse from the current 7 billion back to about 2 billion in the next decade or so - I don't see how photography will exist in such an environment

    Two of the many clues for this outlook are the loss of calcium from marine organisms and the accelerating breakdown of organic soils across the sub antarctic area, which is releasing methane from the formerly frozen tundra, which is going to exacerbate the environmental problems which will affect our water supplies and cripple food production - The horn of Africa is just the beginning

    I just can't see us changing our ways suddenly, but I felt that we had lost the battle against our worst behavior in about 1972

    No, this is not typed as a joke and I deeply regret having children

    Have a happy Christmas

    Just look over the Sony NEX5n and NEX7 for a down payment on the future. Most current DSLRs resemble early automobiles whose designers just put an engine where the horse used to be--DSLRs just slapped a sensor where the film went. NO clue what, if any, place there will be for analog that far away.

    I predict that World War III would have finished the world off several times over in the next century.
    Nobody and nothing will be left to record the event. Sad.

    That must be Afghanistan...
    There must be documentary photographers active in that debacle; will we get to see what our tax money is being spent on?? If not contributing to WWIII...

    My father is already almost frowning on my continued use of film, however he never was a photographer. As things are at the moment, it seems there's a trend back towards visual art (in all types) which is slowly growing. Makes one feel better about that.

    I just hope that our art, being actual drawings and painting is still alive and well in the future.

    When the robots begin standing in front of mirrors with their cameras in order to take their self-portraits: the end of photography?
