    Sometimes I get a little "star struck"

    A heads up for those that have never done such, for those that are new here, or those that are "sorta" new here ...

    If you have a favorite artist, photographer, printer, etc... just try doing a search for their name and you'll likely see a post where they in fact have contributed! I am always amazed by this site and the plethora of information here - and super excited when I see someone I admire actually posting here. It's like seeing your favorite movie star at your local grocery store!

    That's all. I just get excited sometimes.

    Yes, it is surprising who turns up here every-so-often. Although in the past on APUG certain characters have turned up for a while and then either disappeared off or been suspended by the administrators. Being well known does not always ensure good behaviour...

    Just be careful who you admire on these forums. There was a photographer on this forum and another whose work I REALLY admired and always wanted to emulate. He was a real talented guy but he was a rude, insulting, crude, and mean-spirited person. He may have also been a crook. But he was really talented... and if I mention his name I'll likely get banned.

    Actual this may sound like sucking up/brown nosing but one of my heroes is a regular.
    He is a retired Kodak engineer and is extremely generous with his huge knowledge.

    +1 P.E. is my hero.
    Thy heart -- thy heart! -- I wake and sigh,
    And sleep to dream till day
    Of the truth that gold can never buy
    Of the bawbles that it may.

    I agree, Katie. In fact, I've discovered some of my favorite contemporary photographers in the Gallery. Without APUG, there's a good chance I'd never have discovered their work.

    There are several here whom I admire greatly, and a couple of others I consider siblings, the "brother from another mother" thing.

    I do appreciate ALL of the members here - talented or not.
    I lived on the street in LA for a while in my younger wilder days and something another soul told me during those days has stuck with me all these years, "We all put our pants on one leg at a time".

    Yep, there are some serious talents in here, both as artists and artisans. Many incredibly helpful and nice guys and gals. I have a lot to thank them for, both technically and artistically.
