    Shawn, I like how Elliott Erwitt and Jay Maisel say the p-word...

    Because someone needs to point out how puerile it is.

    Ben, for most these threads are likely just a way to pass a free moment or two when there's not enough time to actually go out and do real photography. I work from home. Software development. I keep APUG on a side monitor. When I get a free moment between debugging product build cycles I occasionally jump in with a drive-by post.

    Like right now.

    This weekend I'll be out with the 8x10, weather permitting. But I can't fit that in during the wait for a three-minute debugging build on a Friday afternoon while working.

    These weekday afternoon threads are like all the Old Farts sitting around the porch at the General Store on a Saturday afternoon simply BSing to pass the time.

I do not wish to impose my personality upon the sitter, but, keeping myself open to receive reactions from his own special ego, record this with nothing added: except of course when I am working professionally, when money enters in,—then for a price, I become a liar..."

    I find this thread much more interesting than "what's the best time for trix in D76 at 24°?" When you listen to people talk about what they truly love, the way they say things matters almost as much as what they say..
    Thanks Shawn

    brassaď is pronounced like " braaws ay ee " the two dots over the the ď ( tréma ) makes it so you pronounce both vowels separately
    laszlo moholy nagy is pronounced in hungarian like "mo-hoy-neug"

    moholy nagy is the godfather of modern graphic design and plastics work,
    he did much more than make bauhaus perspective, and type+graphics-photographs and invent photograms ( simultaneously with manray ).

    thanks shawn
