I don't have a problem with the amateurs who come here asking how to better shoot their first wedding. Most of these first wedding photographers are pressed, cajoled, browbeaten or bushwacked into duty because they are either the family shutterbug, or they have a decent camera, perhaps the only dSLR among the circle of friends.

I started Ingrid Goes West but found it curiously depressing and gave up. (I think I'm losing my cinematic appetite in general.) But as for books, Switzerland on the Rocks is now on my wants list. Thanks for the tip!

Yes, Ingrid Goes West is depressing. But for anyone on Instagram I think it's required viewing. I think Switzerland On The Rocks is out there cheap in the used bins.

Paterson is one of my favorite movies of all time, just hits the mark in so many ways.
