She's a force. I can only imagine how proud her parents must be.

Ironically, not exactly environmentally friendly.

15. Rather Petty

This is what you got? This is your issue and concern about the environment? My camera is made out of wood and metal. Your digital camera is made out of plastic, circuits boards and chips. Any idea what kinds of chemicals were used to make your modern digital camera? I can assure you more than anything my 165 year old process uses or used.

19. Sorry to offend.

I simply said it's kind of ironic. I'm not passing judgement. That would be a bit hypocritical.

You assume that I'm unfamiliar with the subject. I bought my first enlarger as a teenager. I even spent a couple years in my twenties making VanDyke Brown prints, Cyanotypes, Platinum and Palladium prints. Spent a couple more decades shooting & processing everything from Super 8 to 8x10. I've been exclusively digital for the past 15 years. Wet sold our complete darkroom setup to a nice young lady who does alternative printing on fabrics.

Have a nice day!

p.s. I miss the smell of fixer.

25. I saw that post already.

It was still a petty comment. But, then, the actual artist showed up. Embarrassing, isn't it?

27. How is it embarrassing?

Embarrassing is the next morning when you find out what happened at the bar after you've left the gallery on opening night. I've had a lot of discussions/arguments/critiques with fellow artists in the last 40 years. A single post on the internet hardly qualifies as embarrassing.

The problem with the internet is that so many comments are seen as adversarial, even if they are just observational. I suppose should have typed a longer explanation rather than a single sentence. Or maybe added some emojis. But I get bored easily. My bad.

Again, I'm not passing judgement, just making an observation. I've been doing this photo thing my entire adult life. I probably have more silver halide in my blood than white blood cells. Speaking of which...lunch break is over. Back to work.

29. I think it's only vegans who put down non-vegans

who I've ever seen trashed.

All due respect for anyone who can eat in such a healthy and moral manner. OTOH, tell others they're somehow unethical or otherwise deficient because of my dietary choices and one might get pushback.

30. Well

I think vegans who post about suffering of animals do get trashed. I experience that whenever I post on that subject in General Discussion. People will jump on the thread and make jokes about the yummy pig they are going to have that night. They don't debate that the pig suffers during it's life or when it is killed, they just make a joke about it. So I consider that trashing.

If someone just mentions they are a vegan, without saying anything further about it, no one cares about that.

I have read Greta has convinced her parents to be vegan, maybe only related to climate change, but maybe also because she believes animals suffer before they go to the slaughterhouse and while at the slaughterhouse.

And Greta's "how dare you" speech, she implies that contributing to climate change by not doing everything possible is wrong, or irresponsible, which includes that you shouldn't eat beef.

34. I think we're saying the same thing

Someone just saying "I'm vegan" gets no grief. Anyone who has ever implied that people should change their behavior gets crap, just seems to be the way life is.

I mean I'm not going to knock or ridicule or taunt anyone for doing what they honestly believe right. I might try to convince someone that what they are doing *isn't* right, but be it eating meat, voting for Trump, 'rolling coal' or whatever, I have every right to expect hostility and ridicule when trying to change anything about someone else that is not immediately, directly, and quantifiably harming me.

Digital is alright, but for classic photography you can't beat silver nitrate.
