    Maybe we should kill ourselves for creating limited editions instead of letting others be able to buy a print at a reasonable price. What reasonable???? your must be %$%%%@#^^%$^#^@%%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do you realize I spend a lot of time, money, effect to get this #@$%@^%@% photograph and you want me to set a reason price of $100-200 for an 8x10 print. Now lets not forget maybe the actual image size is a 5x7. I like collectors who are willing to buy my photographs. But I am not willing to gouge then to death like galleries. I would rather have 100 prints of the same than 25 out there. Such as life. But hey, I am have been having problems with my mind since my total left knee replacement took place Feb 15, 2007. Nonetheless, I just won't gouge.

    Kill the camera collectors? That'd decimate 3/4 of the users here!

    Sounds good to me. But then we lose a lot of expertise. So we will have to reconsider that thought. Back to the drawing board.

    No collectors here--just accumulators.

    As I sharpen my knife collection, making preparations to complete rjas's request . . . I reflect on my own mortality.
