If memory serves me, that was about the time the Portrait section seemed to have a meltdown.

I don't frequent the portrait section, but I guessed that something of the sort may have caused Ed Shapiro to quit visiting the Camel. Pity. I miss his historical essays on different facets of photography.

Ed and Bobby both chose to leave the forum, along with a few others.

Both of them along Ernst left and I for one miss them for their insight. All three were valued members who I think just got tired of drama, some of which they might have contributed to also. It all depends on your point of view.

No disrespect to anyone, but that so-called "classical" portraiture is way out-dated. So out-dated they look funny.

Technology moves on, like a train. It doesn't wait for anybody.

Ditto, it appears, Tat2Duck. Haven't seen Rick Waldroup around, either, who was one of the better contributors to the street photography forum.

I miss 'em both.
