    And as far as I am concerned, there is no "failure" in such projects. Even if you raised "zero", the effort of caring enough to do something is itself a success.

    I had spent time working in the borders of Thailand, and also Indonesia, working with displaced people affected by political disruptions. For me, knowing that somewhere out there, others are trying to help in own different ways, was of tremendous encouragement.
    yes i see where you're coming from. it was actually quite a trying time considering that those discouraging words came from 'established' photographer, and there was nothing to cushion the entire project except trust between strangers.

    initially there were much talks of photogs volunteering to go to the sites to help with the photography of the dead for identification, that of course would not work out considering the physical and psychological perparation needed. so we settled for something more workable, though an insignificant drop compared to the ocean of funds.

    The underlying message of the photos is: "Eve can't live without Adam in the Garden of Eden".

    Do you know the reasons the apostle Paul gave for his remaining unmarried?

    All these brings back memories. Like nearly 30 years ago! I was single then.

    Well, I am going to bed now. Work tomorrow....................

    and we hope there won't be a need to 'activate' Photoaid again for any calamity in the region.
    Commendable service!

    Probably you could exend it to something like an annual fund raising event to the charities in the future. Selling prints is one of the obvious ideas. I'm sure many photographers here are happy to donate a print or two.

    Every Begining has an End. Has the End Arrived ? No. It has only began.

    The End of present. Brings the Future. The End of Future brings Hope and Love to all Mankind.

    time to sleep. the weekends has ended... the new week has started.

    thanks on behalf of all who helped

    the idea is good, and we need a group of people dedicated to organising things in singapore. as much as i'll like to help organise, i'll be in japan for 2.5 years more so it'll be quite impossible for me to help during this time.

    but above this, we need to have a common cause that all involved can identify with. during the tsunami the outpoor of emotion was direct and apparent. once we can identify the cause, i believe things will fall into place.
