Just a reminder that I always enjoy getting feedback and comments of the books that I post on 5B4 Photography and Books. So keep them coming please!
One small problem lately is that I have been getting a lot of spam in my comments sections. These are companies that insist on polluting the atmosphere and discussion by adding hyperlinks to their business's website in the comments section of popular blogs. Apparently my blog has reached a certain level of popularity as these annoyances are steadily increasing in occurrence here at 5B4 Photography and Books. Monitoring and deleting them takes extra time away from my usual life and writing and my time is too valuable.
So as a solution, if you want to leave a comment, you will now have to type in a verification code that will appear before your comment will be posted. I sincerely apologize for the added step (it actually only takes about 5 seconds) but until there is a death penalty imposed for 'comment spammers,' I am afraid this is the world we will have to live in.
The image composite above is from the fine book Red-Color News Soldier published by Phaidon in 2003.
Ethical usage disclaimer: The woman in the pictures was not a 'comment spammer' and I mean no disrespect to the photos or mean to belittle that event.
