    Haha! At first I thought you were referring to the Greek philosoper, Plato, since his real name was Πλάτων (Pláton). Maybe it was a sort of WWJD question.

    I can't view the videos on my steam-powered phone, so I'll have to exclude myself from providing any meaningful response to your query.

    As for the original Platon, he'd probably view his images projected on a cave wall by firelight.

    Your "original Platon" observation is important in it's way. Projection by firelight was smelly, so somebody invented lantern slides.

    However...if you have a computer with audio, that's larger than your phone, I think you'd enjoy today's Platon,. He has been important to New Yorker Magazine and his compassionate photo philosophy is conveyed in the videos in my link. :smile:
