    "Recently, a friend and photographer I really admire lamented that perhaps we were doing most of our work for other photographers. If that is true, then it’s too bad. However, it may well be true. It’s no secret that the laity probably doesn’t get much of our work. They definitely do not care what camera/lens/film/developer/paper we used! They just want to see the pictures."

    That wasn't Aaron Siskind or Ansel Adams. Who said that?

    The paragraph you quoted is from my website and I wrote it. If you are referring to "a friend and photographer" it is not Siskind or Adams, as I did not know either man. The person in question in very much alive (and a member of this forum) but I'll leave him anonymous.

    ...

    HI David....hope you don't mind my quoting that paragraph.. .

    I was thinking about this: "we" (includes me, and not just you and your friends/associates) too often direct our work mostly to other photographers and not to people who care more about art and other values ("laity"), than do photo enthusiasts generally. Which explains why there's so little "laity" interest in unique character of analog photography.

    I do not, of course, mind you (or anyone) quoting something that I have posted on the internet. But to be honest, I am a little frustrated that you chose to go completely off topic with this and your comment about tornados. :wondering:
