The fellow in question is making a solid living at production and item photography and does not have to sponge off his wife's rather lucrative pastry shop. In other words, the critics he responds to are the folks who pay his tab and a couple of other greats (Mike is close friends with, for instance, Ernst Wildi as he was with the late Sal Di Maco and is a noted scholar of Capa's work.) And, BD, don't you be saying anything bad about another of my clients, Bob Shell. Be nice! Marc email@example.com FAX: +540/343-7315 Cha robh b?s fir gun ghr?s fir!
