One of the benefits of this forum is that it may introduce us to photographers/images we don't already know (particularly some of us parochial folks in the USA, myself included). I now plan on buying Cornish's book. Thank you (I think).

I like how people react based on the subject of the photograph. While I like landscapes/nature, after sitting with Adams "The American Wilderness" for an hour or so, I like to then pick up Dorothea Lange or Helen Levitt - and vice versa.

And we do become jaded as the glut of images go by. The same thing happens in other fields: a sacrificial combination in chess, thought beautiful and brilliant in 1900, is considered a mundane bit of technique 40 years later.....
