So much bitching lately on LuLa.

I just give thanks that we are all different, if it were not so then what a desperately dull place this would be.

You have to be brave to start a topic about something not pre approved by the old farts of Lula.

I wouldn't have the foggiest idea how to "fit" anything into this thread, Ivo, since I haven't the foggiest idea what it's about. So far there's not a single picture in it worth trying to emulate or follow. You seem to think photography has moved on since its inception, and from a mechanical point of view you're correct. But subject matter hasn't really changed, and never will.

Well well here we go again. I have a dog in this fight having posted an image I am actually quite pleased with. I think generally the criticism is quite one sided coming from you Russ. Itís not the first time you have had a go at Ivoís photos. Not the first time you have had a go at mine either. I remember you telling me the photos I posted on a Street thread were pooor snapshots without merit. I have always found Lula to be quite kind to photographers having a go and trying something and have myself generally refrained from being critical. I have sometimes suggested where I think an image can be improved but I donít think I have ever attacked anyoneís images in the way you do Russ.

Would you be strong enough to take it since you are pretty good at dishing it out?

Or too arrogant (since you throw insults) to expect pictures to go unquestioned when they were dressed up in such fine clothing? Ever read the Emperor's New Clothes?

Excuse-moi?
There is certainly a serious issue with arrogance here on Lula. All who stumble over each other to condemn the images shown in this thread are sick in the same bed.
Why not simply put the level to your height by posting some of your work? I will not judge it.

I responded to the pictures because of the words which accompanied them. Why can you not accept it's that simple?

Not really Stamper.  Check what Wiki is saying about Humanist Photography. But thanks for your open question.

Thanks Ivo. We walked in close proximity to these two people for 3 days. This was day two and we were at around 5600m altitude. Shortly after taking the photo I caught up with them and went past and then noticed that the old lady on the right was totally blind. The younger woman was talking to her guiding her foot placement on the tricky sections. Imagine the commitment to help getting the old lady around a three day pilgrimage?

But that would be street, Robert. Too difficult a concept for a lot of photographers to grasp.

I've gotta say, Russ, after watching you argue for years that street photography is more than simply sticking a person in the frame, it is surreal to watch you argue the exactly opposite position here. It's almost as if you don't care about anything except butting heads with Ivo.
