Sonny I'm not sure how you got from those couple of posts about the Yearbook
and  the shared photo album books I edited, to your suggestions on
photography opportunities.
Which guys ought to get busy? Our last book includes  (5 great shots each
from) Tom A, Ted Grant, Henning, Tina, Charlie Chan, Lluis Ripoll, Nathan,
Steve Barbour, Ric Carter, Doug Herr, George, Richard and more. Not quite
folks who seldom shoot and post pictures!
,Actually I do find travel inspirational. No-one ever accused me before of
under-posting ANYTHING either! ;-)
