I just returned from a short trip to France...
I clearly missed a lot here, it seems the LUG has been busy, like a  
giant inexorable glacier...
teeming with controversy and fascinating discussions...

and regarding your photos Tina, I find them wonderful, and absolutely  
right for their stated will love them...

I bring no agenda, and I certainly left with none.

I do find that in spite of the obvious differences in your subjects,  
these photos of children will connect with a young audience, not  
because of differences, but very much in spite of them... the feeling  
that comes from your work so very appealing to children is the  
sensation that kids are the same the world over...this will really  
move your young audiences...
