    Sorry to see that a founding member of this forum is leaving photography behind, see large format photography forum. His passion for and knowledge of the platinum print will be sorely missed.

    I couldn't find the post on the LF forum. Can you give details on this?

    I agree. Jorge and I have not always agreed but I respect him highly both for the integrity of his intellect and for his knowledge of photography. I will definitely miss his contributioins.

    Jorge was one of the first members of APUG. For the formative years here, his steady contributions and advice helped to make APUG what it is today.

    Good luck with whatever you do next, Jorge!

    Can someone post some more information here, as non-members of the LF forum have no access to the thread.
    I miss Jorge.

    Ari all he's saying is "Well folks, after much introspection and arising bussiness opportunities I have decided to get out of photography, so here is the equipment for sale." then listing the equipment.

    And later in the thread "THank you guys, I appreciate it but life goes on and one has to move on when things change. I no longer enjoy photography as much as I used to, getting out there to take pics felt like a chore instead of something I wanted to do and this is not a recent rut, I have felt like this for the last couple of years so it is time to face the facts. Yes, I will miss it and I am sure there will be times I wish I had a camera, but judging from the last two years, these are not as often as they used to be when I couls not wait to go out there."

    Unlike women, photography will always take you back.

    Jorge has not posted here for some while now. He has been a help to me and I have one of his prints 'lighting up' a wall.

    One thing I don't understand is why he's selling the cameras.
    Allright, so he doesn't feel for photography anymore, that's easily understood, even Bresson did it,
    but why give away all his great equipment when he could, as he writes, miss it later in life?
    I hope he is not in any financial difficulty.
