Not only is it an inexpensive way to do a great kindness, you also get a sample of some really good printing with a commonly available printer, to give you an index of what can be done -- even if Reichmann's photos are not exactly to your taste.

I recently went through the cancer trip with my wife, and *everything* is absurdly and wretchedly expensive. The cost adds to all the other uncertainties and stresses, and to be in a position not to have the money at hand can actually have devastating emotional consequences for the people involved with the patient, and the patient herself.

Mike,

I ran into The Luminous Landscape over a year ago and quickly started devouring the articles there. I've found it to be a veritable source of old-school knowledge. What does that mean? It's how I describe webpages and/or people that promote art-over-equipment in photography. Places like TOP. You guys place emphasis on the print (be it physical or pixelated), and not on the camera; the Art, not the Equipment.

Anyway, I've always thought of TLL and TOP as sister sites, and you are always side-by-side on my Firefox protected tabs. (Is it also just a mere coincidence that both head honchos are called Mike...?)

I saw Mike R.'s plead for help this morning and was extremely happy to see your first post of the day linking to it. I've forwarded it to my wife and we'll be checking our budget to see how many prints we can buy. I'd always wanted to buy one of Mike R.'s pieces as a way of saying 'thank you' for all the free articles I've read, and maybe now would be the best time to do so.

I guess all this rambling is mostly to thank the both of you for fighting the good fight. There are not many good photography sites on the internet, and I believe TLL and TOP to be the best (in no particular order).

Cheers,

M.

"Anyway, I've always thought of TLL and TOP as sister sites, and you are always side-by-side on my Firefox protected tabs. (Is it also just a mere coincidence that both head honchos are called Mike...?)"

Miserere,
Well, THAT'S a coincidence, for sure, but I have a strong connection to the Luminous Landscape, and that's no coincidence--I wrote a regular column that was published there for more than three years before I started TOP. The column was eventually also published in several other venues, but The L-L was always its "home" site.

You can still read all the columns there--go to "Columns" and then "The Sunday Morning Photographer."

And thanks for the kind words, too.

Mike J.
