Hi Peter,
my name is Peter Bertelle & am living in Sydney Australia.After a complaint to Blurb Books re the quality of their hardcover binding they agreed to reprint my book. Yesterday Fed Ex delivered the book. Unfortunately it seems the only thing that I created was the dust cover because the book inside was your creation Viewfinder 2011. My compliments to you & your students on your book. Interesting & varied collection of prints, my wife & I enjoyed them. At 62 years of age I wish that I had the opportunity to have sat in on some photography classes. In the last six years I have been going through a steep learning curve in adapting to digital photography & at the same time learning how to use computers & photshop. I am curious to know if you have my book in your dustcover. My book is called Sydney Tattoo & Body Art Festival 2011. I don't have any tattoos but have seen many that I would like to have photographed. In the meantime if you have some 'quite time' go to my site for something different & a 'touch of Australiana' in particular 'A weekend in Melbourne' & my first book 'Discovering The Darling River' which is a blend of a father & son road trip & a reflection of me standing at the doorway to my sons rite of passage & reflecting on my own. You can google my name & Darling River & it should pick up a lead. I hope I haven't bored you. Regards to you & your students.

A wonderful book. Well done to Pete and all students involved.
As you can see I am already receiving posts & compliments on a book which I have not created.

Menlo School Photography Students,
Congratulations of your exceptional work! It shows us many faces of photography, and of the photographer as well. The diversity of subject matter and perspectives blend into your personal and distinct sensitivities of what is the beauty of the image that lies before you. The fine compostions are so well done that minute details and large landscapes are equally enhancing. The work shows much thought behind every press of the shutter and unites itself with a body of artists that have the common bond of being touched by the world around them - and presenting that beauty in its finest hour.

Thanks DABY4Y. I think you might be surprised by the relish and delight that young people have for the both the film and digital aspects of the medium. Photography is not only alive and well, but thriving.
