Me too. I needed a break and finaly went back.
I'm sure Coot will be back soon. I can already hear the sound of the Dodge charger coming from far away.
James Russell will be missed for a lot of reasons.
First he is one of the very best image makers of this forum and a profesional highly respected worldwide.
But personaly, apart from the artistical talents, I'll miss a lot the person himself.
I've been kwowing a lot of the big boys of this industry and learned that there is something way much more important tan the personal artistic habilities,
wich is the human side.
Coot is very good, but he never lost the roots, never played the start, never try to impress anybody, just his images speak by themselves.
He is a great and very very healphy person and that's priceless in an industry generaly dominated by big egos.
I'm sure all the persons who work with him on sets love him.
He was here for the share and the fun, and if things aren't fun anymore...time to go.
Coot, I'll miss you.
Ps: on the other hand, if I can understand Coot's choice, I'm with Keith. If people start to leave like that, it means that what we didn't want to see is winning the silly game. As he says: don't let them win
mmm...I see the orange roof of the car in the horizon.
