I remember my early days here when I was trying to get my 1st photo into the database. I emailed few photographers which I considered the best then asking for advice. Most of them ignored it but Charles wrote me a a few emails with priceless explanations about scanning photos and editing them up to Airliners standards. I will always be thankful to him for that.
I was rolling on the floor laughing when I read that post by Falk.
I lived in Zambia for a good number of years, and I can remember my father wanting to throttle some of the officials when trying to get peper work signed for various things. I know exactly where he was comming from.
