    Hello, Eberhard

    You're still quite well known - do a search in Google!

    Just two years of dryness? I went through 15...

    Welcome back.

    I know only one creative, working photographer who hasn't complained of
    going into a slump of some sort. He's a particularly rugged and stalwart
    individual - the kind of guy that would break a leg and limp on; just the
    right kind of person to do expedition work, and he did a lot of that.

    Sometimes a slump can be a healthy, humbling experience. I went through a
    profound slump, a long period of serious depression in which nothing
    looked good, nothing worked out right, I came close to death, but for some
    reason I took pictures anyway and just didn't print them. Years later I
    went through the negatives and looked at them with 'new eyes', almost as
    if someone else had been the photographer. The new critical point of view
    was important. I found myself being a bit kinder and more open minded to
    all photographers' points of view.

  4. Why, then, would the company spend 1 billion dollars on a new factory?

  7. It's interesting that you say this. My best work was made when I was miserable.

    Who can forget your breakdown of developer potentials ? LOL !
    Unfortunately my experience parallels yours. We've had a family and bought
    a new home. It's been a little too busy for serious photography.
    Yes and you will note that many of the best contributors are now absent.
    Michael Gudzinowicz, Lloyd Erlick, Allen Zak and many others rarely attend
    anymore. Even Richard is hardly seen with all of the flaming going on.

    And I shall apologize for not spelling his name correctly. That was a
    little uncalled for. But he's still staying in my killfile.

  11. Um, I don't think it's a September thing, Roman.

    The most common hoax promoted the false concept that light bulbs
    emitted light; in actuality, these 'light' bulbs actually absorb DARK
    which is then transported back to the power generation stations via
    wire networks. A more descriptive name has now been coined; the new
    scientific name for the device is DARKSUCKER.

    oct1503 from Lloyd Erlick,

    Don't count me out!

    I sold my place recently, which implied a move. Given my proclivities,
    a darkroom transplant was (still is...) necessary. Ouch. Once the
    actual weariness of packing up wore off, I realized how pleasant the
    sheer state of goof-off is. I visited Natalie at her cabin way more
    often this summer than this city boy normally does. Then followed her
    to Quebec for a little retreat from the retreat. I'm looking for a
    proper place to locate (the one I'm in now is just too small...). Then
    comes another move and a transplant that takes, I hope; meanwhile, if
    it's not naptime, could you please pass me the margueritas?
