Conventional wisdom used to have it that an Oscar was worth an extra million dollars in box office receipts. But that was a decade or two ago, and probably applied only to mainstream feature films.

I saw veteran documentary filmmaker Errol Morris’s latest work, “The Fog of War,” two days after it won the 2004 Academy Award for the Best Documentary. There were only three of us in the audience. Granted, it was a mid-afternoon screening on a Tuesday, but still I have to wonder whether that golden statuette will translate into bigger bucks for this film.

Thanks for you kind comments Tony. This post is not tarteged at anyone though, just some personal thoughts having seen what is happening around me. I do get fascinated by gear sometimes (I’m sure all photographers do!), but I just just try to focus my attention on shooting and the studying of works. I agree the 50mm is a fabulous lens. I’m only shooting on purely 35 50mm currently. These 2 lenses do me. I must also admit cameras nowadays just keep improving on the low-light capabilities, which is not a bad thing at all!

That’s the first question I had, Sean. There must be factors that are causing people to still get on that road. Perhaps that’s the only road into the city from that direction.I guess this is what can happen when you have unchecked growth, but you’d think heavy-handed government like China’s would be able to do something about this. on June 8th, 2016 at 7:17 am 

I’d recommend Galway and Westport • they are good lively places for fun, craic, and a general buzz, and Irish traditional music in the pubs as part of the everyday Irish experience • they are good tourist towns without being “touristy”. on June 9th, 2016 at 9:59 am
