RVW as an octogenarian, in rare colour.
… music is not only an `entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.    RVW, 1948

Not much use when the accusation was made anonymously.... ;D

They were also wise enough not to accept any accusation which did not bear the full name and address of the accuser.

Goid for them.... But for many here in Spain, reading the words “Inquisition” and “wise” in the same sentence is a bit....shocking?  :D

e: and remind me, who is the forum control freak loser who deems shooting film to be passe? Really, all you guys consumed with existing in the digital domain, why don't you avoid being distracted by the external validation pop-up prompt, before even considering putting a lens on something/someone? You're a photographer? LMAO
Well, I can't think of anyone else you might be describing than me. I agree that social media likes and comments have little to do with photography (luckily notifications for such things can be turned off). And I don't think I've really said that film is passé. I have a digital camera and I like to use it. The pinch of knowing that every click of the shutter costs money and limits how many shots you have left is certainly a good incentive for thinking before clicking, but I've found shooting a RAW file and then making a jpeg out of that with the camera editor is a process that suits me at the moment. I'd love to get my hands on a good printer, though.

No.

I'm not referring to you. I understand and accept who I am and that how I might conduct myself is (from time to time) less than palatable to some. But I've the balls to call people out - even if it's admin on an Internet forum - and name names in the process. So, if I had something, anything, to say about you, I would address you directly, Karlo - I don't fuck around in that respect and in real life, I can back it up. You remember I have your (last couple of) home addresses? - if I wanted to say something to you I would take pen to paper, scrawl a note, head off to the post office and let you know how I feel.

e: why do I have to deal with this BS? In the past you've had no problem engaging in conversation with me via PM. Hit me up before accusing me in public of something I'm not guilty of.
And if anyone else wants to say anything - come ahead.  8)
