Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

My brain is simply not open to reading a comment written by someone your age that begins with the words "The youth".

That might explain my recent string of rejections lately!



Ah! My joke for the day!

I for one cannot recall a time where I publicly bitched about RP.. Perhaps I am the exception?

I'm the only person in the database that has a picture of CN 8841. Means I have something in common with that guy.

Not sure how to feel about that

With full awareness that the following statement will sound completely hypocritical, as it smacks of being on a high horse:

There are plenty of people in this forum who would benefit from following that advice.

Peter,

Just the answer I'd expect from you.

I never denied being part of "the youth", however from my observations of "the youth" here on RP, I've gathered that there is certainly a comparison between bitching about rejections and a younger age group. Am I wrong?

Additionally, I find it highly inaccurate to associate me with "the youth" in that regard and I find our only relations to be our age. Again, please inform me if I am wrong.

I am certainly part of the younger generation of RP, but I hardly find it right to say all of the youth has a negative reaction and rather ugly response to rejection.

If that makes me arrogant, then so be it, but I believe it's just clarifying a valid point of how not all youth have an ugly response to rejection. Other similar photographers who take my approach and learn from the rejections include Samuel Phillips, Max Medlin, and Nikos just to name a few off the top of my head. I'm basing that off of the fact that they don't complain or rant to the forums when receiving rejections. They welcome CC, but never seem to have a real hateful reaction.

Not a Canadian thing... though you'll find a nice pelt on a Canadian beaver

I agree with Travis, the date/time stamp is awesome. Think back to a story you wrote or a picture you drew when you were 10 years old... you probably thought it at least as good as the best effort of human endeavor. Now you can see those rejected shots from the perspective of the photographer... in those eyes they are on par with the best on RP.

What about Charles?

He is young and handles rejection well.

Bob... I love you, man... but I think you're younger than me. (My first memory of a news story was when the astronauts were killed... and I don't mean the Challenger... I mean Apollo One.)

I tend to drink other things when chasing beaver... Hopefully we're not talking about the four legged kind anymore...!

BTW, Charles, seriously, HG is WAY younger than you... I think George Steinbrenner is younger than you, dude.

Lightbulb The Great White North

In my opinion, this is the definitive film about the average American Joe's perception of Canada.




Well, that and the South Park movie.

I don't know how many brain cells I killed while drinking Lucky Lager and watching Bob and Doug during the 80's.
