    Re: Overdone Cliche Subjects

    I think I'm going into a depression now. All my older work seems to be cliched. Does it count if it wasn't large format? Am I excused because I was learning...

    Barn Doors

    Photos of the President looking as stupid as Alfred E. Newman. Sometimes the truth can still be a cliche, and sometimes a cliche can be the truth.

    Tim, I was hoping you'd repost that here.

    It makes up for your embarassing lack of knowledge of America's Majestic Piles of Rock.

    There's such an impressive amount of cliche expertise in this group. It would be a shame to let it go to waste. Chris Jordan is onto something ... do I smell a contest?

    Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you do criticize them you'll be
    a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

    Right on. The implication, whether or not intended, is that the other photographer is somehow superior.

    That's another one that is interesting. Overpopulated, perhaps. We do have a significant impact on the environment. On the other hand, if you get up early, or walk 5 minutes (or often less) from the most popular attractions, or approach them from a different direction, then you are often quite alone. I was there last week with my wife and my 5 and 3 year old kids, and found that the only time I was really crowded was during some of the trips on the shuttle bus, and a few times while trying to get food at the food court by the lodge. We took a day trip up the Tioga Road. Tenaya Lake was especially beautiful.

    By the way, if anyone is heading up to Yosemite, they have a nice exhibition of mammoth plate photographs by Watkins, Muybridge, and others. They are in a room in the museum near the Miwok Village (near the Visitor's Center). Included is a computer presentation of photos not included in the exhibit. Plus, they have a real mammoth camera on display. Made my 4x5 equipment (which I was carrying on my back at the time) seem quite light. Highly recommended.
