What a coincidence.  I have "Women in Medicine".
Having studied the photos in "This is Our Work" a fair bit,  and
having read Ted's comments on photograhs and photography,
I have lately made a game to guess which photos in "Women
in Medicine" are Ted's and which are Sandy's (not Ted's, hence 
by default).   If you have that book, you may enjoy the exercise
as well.

I also would like to join B.D. to say that this is a fantastic photography
book, and a "must" for any LUGer, nay any Leica,  photo library.  My 
photo book budget is very slim this year, and this is my only new 
purchase for the year.  I decided with some tredipations, but now 
am very glad with my decision.

And I am absolutely amazed by how steady Ted is with his hands,
despite all the scotch swilling.   Must be that Lagavulin quality.   :-)

P.S.  Do you know that if you google Lagavullin, a LUG post comes
on top ?  (Of course, the proper spelling is Lagavulin)
