Yes, BD, but that IS the issue.  Photography which appeals to me might not
appeal to you, and, as you have shown, the photography which appeals to you
doesn't do anything to me but move me into overwhelming waves of ennui.
Again, we differ on the central point by which I try to live my life:  the
historical record should be made clear and clean but matters of taste are
individual and, in this venue, there are neither rights nor wrongs, but
only tastes and preferences.

Again, BD, lighten up:  learn to enjoy art and photography which you have
denounced, learn to enjoy those very forms you have so repeatedly denounced.
