Thanks for pointing out the holes in my argument. You're absolutely right; or at least I agree completely. I think a part of me is indignant because I have to work with / be around so many of the "Burger-Kingers," who are the same ilk as the person who posted this 24 hours in SF business — and I'm afraid of the long-term effect it will have on my own perception. I'm from the same generation and I'm bombarded by the junk images as well as the naive comments that praise them. And so I'm vigilant to point out the gulf between the naive work and the great photography.
