Wow, Cheryl. That's what I take away from it. And I consider myself far from an aspiring photographer. More a perspiring one.
I have all I need, gearwise, right now. I know, as a G. A. S. aholic, the first step to kicking the problem is admitting one has it. I might fill a focal length gap with a lens next February but I will focus on film, paper and chemistry and bunches of that and perfect what I do with what I do it with.
That is so cool, Cheryl. Thank you for posting that. Makes one re-evaluate one's own photography, regardless of skill level.
