  1. What a great watch! So many quotes that are all entirely true and the comical paradoy on them was great. Having lived in Hong Kong for a number of years it has to be one of the greatest places in the world for street photography. I never left home without a camera regardless! One does need to be careful to blend in! We want natural don’t we! I’ve had oranges, bananas and coconuts thrown at me for grabbing a quick silce of Hong Kong life! Duck and run! LOL! Even here in California you never know what you might run across. Just yesterday on my way to a friends home I saw a lady walking a 3 foot Africa Turtle! The only camera I had was my cell!
    “My best shot is the one I haven’t taken yet!” to paraphrase.
    My worst camera is the one I left behind!

    normally i look forward to opening your email notices.
    i was in total DISBELIEF when this time as i read thru and trusted you when i clicked on the link you provided-“25 Great Photography Quotes

    DO YOU ACTUALLY CHECK THINGS BEFORE YOU RECOMMEND THEM?!
    i was shocked that you would provide this link as a suggestion—it was so IMMATURE, several times inappropriate behavior or language (i.e. computer sex, etc.)—-it was shocking that you would SUGGEST this video in your normally trustworthy and helpful email.
    it has nothing to do with being prudish about this video—-it has to do with WASTING our time!
    i’m so surprised and disappointed in you for even suggesting this stupid video!
    i don’t believe you REVIEWED it first! do you really think the whole 12+ minutes of this is a good REPRESENTATION of your company?!
    watch the whole thing through-including the ending. there is no doubt you will agree it is immature and a poor suggestion!!!

  3. Sawa, you make some very good points. There are quite a few areas that are either simply sophmoric or in extremely poor taste. I am relitavely conservative regading this type of conduct and frankly overlooked it as an immature and inappropriate conduct. The rest of the video holds a great deal of comic relief and paradoy on some very important quotes from the greats in the history of photography.

    I will agree with you that the parts in the video that are offensive could have easily been excluded and the importance of the quotes would have come through well along with the comic pardoy. So, why did they do this? I haven’t a clue. Hopefully, your comments will be seen both for this web site and the producers of the video as constructive criticism that should be seriously considered.

    I appreciate and concur with your observation and comment on “inappropriate content”. It’s to bad it is there.

    great video! good humor! good quotes!

    sawa – if you didn’t want to hear photography quotes, WHY DID YOU CLICK THE LINK THAT SAID “25 PHOTOGRAPHY QUOTES?”

    If you saw this video as a waste of time, WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU TAKE THE TIME TO LEAVE COMMENTS, WASTING MORE OF YOUR PRECIOUS, VALUABLE, INTERNET TIME.

    I can’t wait to watch another video made by this dude.
