Happy New Year :)
All the very best, Barb... and all of you good people!
I hope the Challenges get better, organisation and control more effective, entrants more careful, and the trolls, cheaters, devil-may-care hosts, and also those which can't keep a civil tongue in their heads get bored enough to leave.
wonderful quote, particularly trenchant for photographers, though I suspect old Omar didn't have photography available when he said this
much of what photography's joy for me comes from resurrecting the past
the Challenges are far from perfect, but remain a great deal of fun
having this forum as a platform for grievances helps
hoping the New Year brings improvements over the past one

"Avoid making a commotion, just as you wouldn’t stir up the water before fishing. Don’t use a flash out of respect for the natural lighting, even when there isn’t any. If these rules aren’t followed, the photographer becomes unbearably obtrusive" -- attributed to HCB
