fantastic movie, The Year of Living Dangerously (which was on here last
night on some weird channel) - Mel Gibson, Sigourney Weaver, ? Hunt (who won
an Oscar for best supporting actress for her role as "Billy," the male dwarf
photographer). Some really strong black and white stuff supposedly shot by

What point am I missing - of course one should not pass off the third image
as a "photograph:" It is a photo illustration, a photo montage - but it
should not be called a photograph. If it is called a photograph and accepted
as such by people who know what was done to it, then photographs lose all
meaning as portrayals of an instant of reality. Whatever reality may be.

Nice job though, Sonny! ;-)
