Shawn, I like how Elliott Erwitt and Jay Maisel say the p-word...
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.
What Ken said. BTW, I say the P word better'n anybody.
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..
great thread shawn !
did you hear this yet ?
oodles of people saying it
i am not sure whose i like best
maybe ES or M-B-W :)
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 ).
