    Re: Aperture Magazine just set me an e-mail

    Years ago, Ansel Adams said of Aperture "It's a sorry mess". That is quite a lot to say for someone who had helped found the magazine!

  6. Re: Recommendations for Galleries between LA > San Fran

    You just have to go to Carmel - it is a must (galleries there already mentioned). You can also go to Point Lobos while you're at it and check out Edward Weston's old stomping grounds. You may want to...

    Re: Show off your camera!

    Thanks, Miguel. I use a 355 G-Claron and a 480 ApoRonar on the 7x17 and I have even used my 165 SA on it a few times (w/vignetting). A 600 or longer would be welcome too.
