This blog is intended to showcase my pictures or those of other photographers who have moved beyond the pretty picture and for whom photography is more than entertainment - photography that aims at being true, not at being beautiful because what is true is most often beautiful..

Oh why didn't you disclose the name of the camera, Mark? I really have to have it, now that I know there's something so much better than my I-don't-want-to-name-it-anymore camera. I definitely need something even better!

Markus, I found the thing by googling the text from the ad... and I'm not going to name the product.

I'm wondering why these particular photographs make a square^2, but they do, don't they?

More blurb from the company's web-site:

"The L____ really has a way of turning a regular snapshot into a gallery-worthy photograph. It takes no effort to get wonderful photos. It's so simple to use, yet so advanced."

Apropos, I read an article in the paper today about the amount of lies and BS people talk. Apparently it's a natural thing we do ... but it's probably getting worse as the people listening to the BS are too stupid or too polite to say something to the speaker.

Several specifically for Mark and one for everybody.

First for Mark... If you are going to slam someone online while quoting them heavily why be cryptic? If its a form of protection of the person you are slamming then why not just skip the slam all together to begin with? As Juha pointed out.... anyone with an internet search engine anyone can instantly figure out who / what this is.

And for everybody... what good artistically, creatively, personally or otherwise do you think will come out of dropping an internet bomb on the people at Lyyny?

I don't know them or have one of their products but I am a human being that knows what it is like to be ridiculed or ostracized and it feels pretty terrible.

In my life I have noticed we are all much more likely to be cruel when we can do it from behind a shield or from a far distance like the "safety" of our car or of our house while online. How many people would say these things face to face to the same person or people in line at the grocery store?

And you think slamming and or piling onto to the slam of the folks at Lynny will make you a more creative person or help you to deal with your own weaknesses and fears?
