On When Bad Weather Means Great Photography article (28 comments in total)

It is matter of "unusual". Doesn't matter if this is super macro that out-resolves human eye resolution, bad weather conditions when "normal person" sits at home, night photography that also out-resolves human eye's capabilities, stop action of bullet or broken glass, far land landscapes, well taken portrait.

Every time people say "Wow that is amazing photograph" - it is statement of personal discovery.

I've been sitting at night railway station waiting for a train and saw husband using most awefull words on his wife over and over. I couldn't understand how he could do it to own soulmate and how his wife was able to take it from him. I remember this episode from 20 years ago.

There is a serious lack in our modern public education system, in my humble opinion, and it is the absence of teaching ethics in same way that we teach reading, writing and algebra skills.
