  1. Hope for the future

    With lots of doom and gloom around in the market maybe a glimmer of hope. Yesterday I found myself on a big blue jet coming home to some decent cheese (hurrah for cheese!) from a trip to Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. Quite a few striking things on that trip. But one which may hold hope for the future. Whilst a number of years ago it seemed that everyone one met was a photographer... now, the only photographer I met was the lady who rented me a room in Lima. SLR's? I saw a couple... but very few and far between. That may be camera snobbery on my part... and I know that some agents do accept images taken on a telephone... but only a few. And it seemed like the vast majority were taking photos on their phones. There is also the fact that price developments have made many professionals risk averse in making such investments. But could it be that a large part of our competition has ebbed away? And whilst the images which they took before are still on the shelves ... the world still turns and those images become dated. Or maybe I am just kidding myself to justify my risk.
