    Tracking down a Wolf

    If John's post on the rich photog was a surprise, this one is equally surprising:

    The winner of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year award has been disqualified after judges ruled that the featured wolf was probably a "model".

    Sad. Sad if it turns out to be a staged image and even sadder if is isn't.

    Perhaps most sad is that the judges chose that image as the winner, trained wolf or not. 43,000 photos entered and that jumping wolf is the best they could come up with?!? Must have been 42,999 cellphone pix entered.

    Why does a Spanish wolf have a name linked to a forged Scottish Gaelic poem cycle?

    "The market wants a Leica to be a Leica: the inheritor of tradition, the subject of lore, and indisputably a mark of status to own."
