nice story and great photograph bill
i think there are different tools for different situations ..
and there are situations regarding display and presentation as well.
a lot of photographs made on smaller format cameras look great when not enlarged
extremely large ( and some look great enlarged to 16x20, but viewing distance is "back a few feet" )
and a lot of photographs made with a 4x5 or larger camera .. well they are technically nice to look at
but don't have the magic moment effect that can be had with a smaller camera.
a lot of photography that 99% of what people do is to capture a memory they don't want to forget ..
a place, the way the sun hit the hills behind their house, a tornado, friends, family, workmates &c ( sorry to sound cheezy but "kodak moments" )
and to me at least, any level of image quality is acceptable. ...
in a photo album small is nice, and if the same 110 image is enlarged to 20x24 ... it probably has a beautiful impressionistic feel to it
