Philosophy of Photography Taking pics is one thing, but understanding why we take them, what they mean, what they are best used for, how they effect our reality -- all of these and more are important issues of the Philosophy of Photography. One of the best authors on the subject is Susan Sontag in her book "On Photography."

Anybody remember photographs ..you know the things you get after using your box of tricks. We had one of the great picture mags here in the 30s-50s. 'Picture Post'. Their chief photographer went out with a box brownie and produced one of the greatest pics ever. Forget the glass....concentrate on whats in front of it. BTW anybody remember 'differential focus' ie in the posted pic of the 3 guys there's trees growing out of the back of all their heads. Come on guys!!!!!!!!!

That's the most offensive thing I've seen posted here. You have to be pretty low in the food chain to resort to that kind of humour.
It's a joke, lighten up.

It's not nearly as "offensive" as current Leica prices, anyway.

Well now, as is often the case, the fuss about the joke has become a bigger problem than was the joke itself.

No need to mount any moral hobby horses or put on your homemade hall-monitor hats, gents.

I personally found it extremely offensive but if Chambrenoire chose to remove the post I would bear him no resentment and would consider it a rather naive error of judgement!

I'd delete this tout d' suite if I were the admin. Most people would find that pretty offensive.
