There are probably 10's of thousands in the same boat you are, but have you
NOT noticed we are in the information age, meaning the Internet and
self-publishing. Why not do what several others are doing here on the LUG
and post a Photo-A-Week (PAW). Self publishing has become pretty commonplace
on the internet--instead of bailing out, create your own web site and
publish your pictures for all of us to see.
