Re: Deep Sierras


Thanks, Mom!

You seem easily... triggered. You also apparently don't read or understand posts before spilling your bile. Your unfocused and misdirected anger suggests issues that go beyond those appropriate for discussion in this forum, Rajan, though this astonishing post of yours nicely illustrates why I give you a wide berth in this forum.

Back to the subject. Impressive photographs, Gregg.

This is vacuous, hollow posturing. The ONLY principled position on this for a photographer who desires to keep place X under wraps (and thereby hope to restrict visitation) is to not publish any photographs of place X in the first place. To publish photos and then preen about not giving out specific locations is a phony tactic practiced by pretend keyboard wielding eco warriors who imagine themselves as exclusive custodians of privileged inside information.

Presumably the places being talked about here are relatively remote so it is not like they will attract casual drive-by 'bucket list' visitors. It is mostly the motivated person who will be interested in such spots, and in this era of Google Earth and other digital mapping resources at one's fingertips, it is not hard to figure out locations with just a few hints. Furthermore, there are always regional experts on hire and for a price they will lead you to these places. In other words, you can do bupkis to prevent someone from knowing where you have been once you have published your photo.

At any rate, what used to be once considered remote areas are today far less remote and the final frontiers of remoteness will be tamed in the years to come.

Just in case there are 10 year olds reading this: nobody is questioning your right to not give out specific locations.

Your unfocused and misdirected anger suggests issues that go beyond those I'm going to discuss in a photography forum, Rajan. I hope you'll seek help if this anger and bitterness extends beyond your forum posting and into your personal life.

Thanks, Mom!

You seem easily... triggered. You also apparently don't bother to actually read or understand posts before spilling your bile. Your unfocused and misdirected anger suggests underlying issues that go well beyond those I'm going to discuss in a photography forum, Rajan. I hope you'll seek help if this anger and bitterness extends beyond your forum posting and into your personal life.
