Re: PhotoForum list and gallery situation

Dear Andy, dear list members,

First let me express my heartiest congratulations to you Andy for your dedication to the PhotoForum Gallery, week after week for such a long period.  My count is that you have acted on1,350 +/- galleries amounting to 13,500 +/- pictures. 🍾✴🎶

I have been active with the Gallery for more than 20 years with several periods of absence due to a variety of reasons. I always came back because I missed the value and quality of the Gallery and list contributors. It's been a source of inspiration when my mind was turning blank. I am struck that many participants have been around since the beginning but I am sorry that the weekly heated discussions have virtually disappeared.

It would be a big loss if PF were to disappear. 🙁 🙁

Maybe it's been mentioned here before, but what we used to call "photography" no longer exists.  Why?  Because virtually every person in the world has a cell phone that instantly makes technically perfect images that can be stored, shared, etc., etc.,etc.  With great nostalgia I look back to the old days when I had a "darkroom" and people actually paid me for what used to be called "prints," in color or black & white.  I used to look at old people with considerable contempt, and now?  The young folks are looking at me the same way.  Oh, well.  At least I still have all my teeth.

Dear members,

Well, the situation is dire ... list activity s pretty much down to zero ... the gallery is limping along but there have not been any contributions for the last couple of weeks. Both could be discontinued unless the situation improves even a little bit.

The list started in 1993 and the gallery in 1996.

Andrew Davidhazy, list coordinator

PS: Roy - re: your question about the type of fruit ... I am stumped. What is it?
