Very funny Lee,

1. In order to save some money, Police departments are only shooting 1 mug shot.2. Neither Rain, Nor Sleet, Nor gloom of night or a Car traveling at 100mph will stop a photographer from getting his picture.

Good stuff here, although i've seen the mugshots before but it was nice to see them again.

Regarding the life of film, i've read many articles and so far it seems like film isn't going anywhere anything soon.  Personally I have started shooting landscapes with a 4x5 large format camera and with even a decent scan the quality is outstanding.  If/when the day comes that the average consumer can purchase a digital medium format, 4x5, or 8x10 camera then film might really die.  Until then I will enjoy shooting film and digital, getting the best of both worlds. Because personally I consider them two completely separate worlds.

Ya, it's pretty much a guarantee that everyone who reads the newsletter will find 1 or 2 things in it that they have seen before.  That's why I do at least 7. :) 

I totally agreed with you about film and digital being different worlds and that they are both great, but my concern is about film loosing its profitability and having the big companies just drop it.  A scary prospect for some of us.
