Scott's Photographica Collection
...to the Web site of an incurable photographica collector.
Photographica? One of those modern words not yet listed in the
dictionary. Each of us afflicted with the photographica collecting habit
probably has our personal definition of this word. To me, it means just about anything
related to photography, with emphasis on artifacts - photographic + artifact.
Collectors tend to be curious. As we delve deeper into our field, we
discover more questions than answers. So, question number one. Who
coined the word photographica?
Such stream of consciousness is pretty much what you will find in these
pages. Hopefully not incoherent gibberish but the thoughts and questions
of one with a life-long fascination in all aspects of photography.

Unbelievable but true... Just today, March 4, 2002 I received an email
that was sent October, 2001. And we criticize the Postal Service!
