    Dear Tom,

    I doubt we'll miss you. You're not as clever or original as you think you are. Most of us are up for intelligent conversation but we are rarely keen on people who think they are original when they aren't and we are almost never keen on people who are arrogant and rude unless they have some quite convincing arguments as to why at least some of us might care to interact with them.

    OK all, I think the message is probably clear enough now.

    If he wants to go, fine. If he wants to stay, fine. Don't think any more comment about it is very helpful. ;)

    But the picture may be nothing like what you saw when you raised the camera. For me, it is more likely to be what I had in my head when I took a photograph - from which I may remove elements or add elements depending upon my vision of what I want my picture to achieve.

    And I am always trying to make one that I adjudge to be better than anything I have created before.

    I have never seen a photograph that pleases every one.
    Good, better and best is pretty meaningless as a generality.
    However we can probably all order a set of photographs in the order of our preference.
    Though the bigger the set, the less likely any two people would agree on this.

    It is hard to think what the universal validity, of photographs in general, might be.
    It is pretty clear that most photographs are by and large ephemeral, and have very little demonstrable intrinsic meaning, artistic, or monetary value.
    For most of us their value is in their creation, and the pleasures that this gives to us, and the memories this invokes.
