    Oh yes oh yes. Your timing was just the thing to get my first chuckle of
    the day!

    Lovely work Annika.

    (Sometimes one has to wonder - all that photographic skill, effort, gear
    etc. and what is this dude shooting? Give us a story man. You have talent,
    don't waste it. But of course that is only my opinion...).

    Well, actually I was talking about Rocha. I sense that a) you are unlikely
    to be a bloke (guy, man, male, fella, dude, cobber, digger etc.) and b) that
    the chances are that your photographic directions are oriented towards
    subjects a little more compelling than stairs, walls, pavements and the
    like, given your original post to this thread!

    Having said that, this guy Rocha has got some IMHO lovely work to his
    credit. I would love to see what he could do with a war-torn village in
    Burma or Zimbabwe! Of course this is not in everyone's orientation - I'm
    just a bit weird on that front I guess.

    A Salgado I am not, but he is my shining example of how powerful the camera
    can be given the right orientations. :)

    Just realised that I used 3 variations on the word "orient" in that post.
    Time to book a flight perhaps??

    Annika's a bloke, alright.
    He's just a bit confused when it comes to screen-names.

    Although Bret looks human and male too, we have no evidence whatsoever that
    he is either. He keeps posting so many pictures of his family, it's hard to
    be sure if they all have 6 legs or 2.

    Thanks a lot Dave :)
    Well... I love photojournalism but can't hope to make such
    pictures !

    I have just released a new serie of pictures here, if you want to
    see : http://www.monochromatique.com/illusions/ :)
    Right !

    Hi Daniel,

    thanks for responding - I was a bit rude in hindsight and for that I
    apologise. We all have our own ideas of what we want to photograph and
    that's what makes life most interesting. The important thing is that we're
    out there enjoying ourselves.

    However, I was speculating about someone like yourself in a scarred
    landscape and the things you could do. I'm sure the results would be quite
    amazing! I had lunch yesterday with a friend here in Australia who knows
    Salgado. Salgado is a very humble and quiet man who often lives in refugee
    camps - sometimes for weeks before taking a single shot. He is all about
    people and their dignity. Wonderful.

    Anyway, keep up the good photography - I look forward to seeing more of your
    work, and one of these days I'll be brave enough to stick up some of the
    shots I've been fortunate enough to take in remote parts of this amazing
    world. :)

    I think he originaly got interested in photography from lookin' at dirty
    pictures, hence the screen name.

    be very annoying... :)
