    True especially among similarly minded persons, likely a group I consider Artists Unconcerned of Convention - my peers, and perhaps yours as well.

    You were there, Jac?
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    As I don't seriously collect or invest in art (mainly trade with friends), the price of art to me is little more than a curiosity. A recent exception was the William Clift exhibit at the NM Museum of Art where there were a number of prints I would love to "live" with but at 9K+ they were completely out of my price range. So I had to settle for the book which is also exquisite. A book (even a well done book) is a poor substitute for an original print but I guess helps one relive the experience of an original.
    Thanks,
