#900. DS is dead. Long live DS?

By pascaljappy | News

900 posts. In today’s goldfish-attention-span media industry, that’s a fraction of a second of content.

#886. Monday Post (5 Aug 2019) – Making Photography Responsible? (plus challenge and site news)

By pascaljappy | Monday Post , Opinion

A couple of weeks ago, it was all about tick-spread diseases, go figure.   […]
