I first published this article on March 10th 2012. I Feel that it is so important I want to publish it again…   Technology is constantly moving, changing the status quo. Over the years we have lost some noble crafts. Some craftspeople or artisans adapted or sought different markets while others became niche suppliers of…

  I put this picture on a forum for Photographers the other day and one of my colleagues, who’s work I admire, made a comment that made me think.
