Random Photo Quote: The dismal half-baked images of the average "reportage" and "documentary" photography are self dammning... the slick manner, the slightly obscure significance, the esoteric fear of simple beuty for its own sake – I am deeply concerned with these manifestations of decay. Gene Smith's work validates my most vigorous convictions that if the documentary photographs is to be truly effective it must contain elements of art, intensity, fine craft and spirituality. All these his work contains and we may turn to his work with gratitude, appreciation and great respect.Ansel Adams -

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the snow on the mountain's rim,
I am the laughter in children's eyes,
I am the sand at the water's edge,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle Autumn rain,
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the star that shines at night,
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.
John, we will miss you.
Help support your local camera store!
We are lucky enough to have 2 great full service camera stores that are local to our members.
Before buying on-line or from some chain store, how about giving them a chance at the deal. They have always been there for us, now it is our turn to be there for them, or next time you need something now, they may not be around.
Visit Silvio's Photoworks and Paul's Photo for new and used film & digital cameras, accessories, workshops, and all the other goodies real camera stores carry. You will sleep better at night knowing you did your part.
