Maybe I should grow a beard.  Seems to be the fashion in VJ #14...Chock full of grizzly eminences.

I continue to be impressed by the production values as the series evolves. The slide show background of textured white is neat. Bringing up the prints onto a corner of the screen during the discussion is a plus--sort of like the preview window of Lightroom.

I smiled during the segment with Clyde Butcher. Where do you find these eccentrics? They are the life and breath of our photographic community and meld craft with art in their own peculiar ways. Fascinating character and great images.

The bit on street photography in China was inspiring. Great integration of video and teaching component with the print display. The production team has really hit it's stride with this concept.

As for the tutorial on Lightroom--it was enthusiastic and energetic and clarified the issues I had regarding the Photoshop/Lightroom continuum.

Here? where is here?

I got my little personal email from Chris with the good news - my very own personal twofer is on its merry way from somewhere up north to my very own mail box  

Of course with the border embargo, it will likely be 3 weeks from the shipping date of February 21 to my mail box.  

Patience is a virtue, horse hockey, I want it now, not tomorrow or next week but now. I am tooooo old to have to wait 3 weeks while everyone else on the whole planet is getting theirs waaaaaaaaaay before I get mine.  

Jeez, people on the other side of the globe get theirs before me. I mean, why does it get to Japan before it gets to Maryland? If I got in my car and drove to Toronto, it could their in back in less than 3 weeks.

Jake,

It's been speculated in a previous thread that the LLVJs migrate in an easterly direction to their ultimate destinations:

[a href=\"http://luminous-landscape.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=9060&st=20]http://luminous-landscape.com/forum/index....opic=9060&st=20[/url]

On other words, you're SOL

Yeah, yeah I know. I bitch and moan everytime that little missive from Chris shows up in my inbox. But what is a guy supposed to do? I mean all these characters who live next door to Michael just sit there gloating and telling us how great this issue is while the rest of us have to just grit our teeth and say nothing. Bah, if I want to complain I will, and after venting some steam, I feel better. Will the twofer get here any quicker? No. Will I dance around the living room when it finally shows up and I can pop that sucker in the DVD and watch it in the comfort of my own home? Yup  

There, I feel better now. A little venting of steam and modern chemicals and I am better.

I should also say that while I really didn't "get" what the big deal was about Lightroom just reading about it here and elsewhere, seeing the tutorial disc and the boyish excitement of the guys as they played with their new toy, got me all excited too.

Mom--can I go out to play now--with my friend, Lightroom???

I got my email last week too....but no DVD yet.  And I only live 1 hour north of Toronto.

Maybe tomorrow....though when it arrives my work productivity is sure to take a massive hit!

All I can say is that it was definitely (as always) worth the wait!  Spent the whole night watching all the great content.

Thanks to Michael and Chris for not making me look like a fool during the portfolio review, which would have been easy to do.  

The bonus Lightroom DVD was awesome....especially since I'm mac-challenged (PC's only here) and thus haven't been able to play with the betas yet.  Oh for a Windoze version soon....

But this means that we can now start bugging Michael and Chris about when LLVYJ #15 will be out, right?  

And now that they've set the bar & expectations higher with 2-DVD LLVJ releases......

Here in Tucson AZ, the average wait time from shipping is 3-4 weeks!  I've learned to become patient.

I really appreciated the interview with Clyde Butcher. I'm member of a group of photographers that almost exclusively shoot 8x10, so the view of these enlargers was familiar (and heartwarming). This kind of art and quality is not going to pass away soon  :-)

Just received my copy this morning - in Switzerland. LLVJ has probably to go around the world once (or twice) before it reaches Arizona    It's a weird world!

 Sorry guys, but here in the UK it is 4 days max between Chris's email and the goods hitting my doormat.
I can't wait to see who is the 'character' for interview in Issue 15.
Jeff & Clyde could almost be brothers (who knows, maybe they are!!!)

Damn, "Empire First" stuff I tell you.

Here in the rebellious (former) colonies, especially on the frontier (Texas), it takes forever.

As I have suspected, Massachusetts is farther from Toronto than either Australia or the UK.    

But Blasr will probably get his before me, as usual.

I hope it gets here before I leave for Tuscany at the end of the month.

Mine arrived here in not-so-sunny California today, a mere week after I got the "it shipped" email on the 23rd.  If my memory serves me correctly, this was a *lot* faster than the last issue.   Westerners take heart!

Mine was shipped on the 22nd, so maybe it is now walking East from California.
