  • 9/11--What can we say?

    I can't imagine how all of you are dealing with our ongoing tragedy from the horrible events of Tuesday. I'm feeling pretty numb myself, with occasional flashes of anger and sadness.

    I wonder how this little site can help, how I can help anyone or anything in this enormous catastrophe.

    Well, maybe we can't help sift through rubble, or help identify the cowardly madmen responsible, but we can help each other, and perhaps ourselves.

    A friend runs a WWII website, and he has an archive of posters from that era. I look at them and wonder what posters would look like for this war against hate.

    Can you make an image that represents what you're feeling? Or one you feel expresses how we should react?

    What are the posters of this new World War?

    Interesting that you should bring this up Doug. I was thinking of a similar thing but from a slightly different viewpoint yesterday afternoon - more of an "art therapy" kind of approach.

      I'm posting this in hopes it might help someone. It will soon be 6 years since we lost one of our sons. We had him buried in what we think is the nicest cemetery in our area. This thread is not about him or us. It's about something you should consider concerning big business and death. Here is my experience...

      by kathleen
      vikki and jeanie have both referred to being perfectionists in recent posts, and i have wanted to ask others about this for a while, both, are you one? does it help or hinder your work as a restorer?

      The company I work for is looking for a fast way to shoot images of jewelry between our monthly photo shoots at the studio photographer we use.

      9/11 and the media
      by G. Couch
      Ok. This may start a heated discussion but as BigAl says, it's been rather quiet in here lately.

      I had a lively discussion tonight with a few people, about whether or not the media (American media in this case) is over saturating people with September 11th coverage. Has it come to the...
