Phil, I totally get that the ability to make things look other than  
they are exists - and with great ease in the digital world. And I  
don't with to sound accusatory to those who use them. Just interested  
in the trends as well as the whys and why-nots as we each see them.  
Surely nobody's asking for my approval (or even my opinion - which I  
offer freely) ;~)

Fond regards,
Picture A Week -
