Business / Philosophy of Photography Taking pics is one thing, but understanding why we take them, what they mean, what they are best used for, how they effect our reality -- all of these and more are important issues of the Philosophy of Photography. One of the best authors on the subject is Susan Sontag in her book "On Photography."

Henri Cartier-Bresson Doc, availabe/streamed on Netflix.

Thought I might mention, since I'm sure other members have Netfilx, but - like me, didn't know it was available as one of their "Watch It Now" titles. If you don't have Netflix, you might consider signing up for a free one month trial, and then cancel if you're not interested, to check out the flick. (Not sure if "Watch It Now" streamed movies are part of the free trial - I think they are...)

As Netflix has increased it's streamed titles (now 7000 titles) I have been using the service more. All movies are "free" (it's part of your membership), no "per view" charge, and with most memberships you can stream as many as you want.

I've been most impressed with the quality of the streaming video. It's really come of age, IMO. I'd peg it at "VHS Slow Play" quality.

I haven't seen this film yet - literally "just" saw the title, but intend to view it this weekend, sometime.

This is cool. I have the three DVDs at a time plan and with that I appear to get unlimited Watch Instantly access. Just tried the HCB video but it said I need to use Internet Explorer instead of Firefox. So as soon as my wife tells me what the damn password is I will give it a whirl.
