Dear Ted the grouch,

You've always made it clear that - to be there and KISS - has always  
worked for you.
You easily grasped the transition from film to digital capture as  
your market forces demanded it.

Many on this list feel strong attachments to chemical process photo  
While others don't mind letting go of the old and welcome the new.

Others, like myself, feel a deep nostalgia and pangs of regret as we  
transition from film to digital capture.

These discussions swirling about the aesthetics, technique, and  
trends (both technical and aesthetic) of film and digital capture  
worlds serve a good and reasonable service to us all; allowing us to  
understand why some remain on one side or the other of the fence and  
why some sit atop it.

Allow us our exchange of thoughts and rest assured that most of the  
participants in the discussion also do their share of active KISS  
photography and sharing there from.

Fond regards,
Picture A Week -
