Readers photos just a waste of space

January 9, 2013 

Concerning the section of Page 2A of The Sun News titled “Readers Gallery.” What an absolute waste of an approximate 2-by-3-inch space. Cannot there be some noteworthy news to occupy that space, rather than (A) two toes of a baby, (B) entrance to the beach, (C) inflatable animal, (D) many sunset photos, (E) many, many duck photos, (F) piers, piers and more piers, etc.? Plus, 99 percent of the photos are black and white, and boring.

I have enjoyed photography for almost 60 years, taken many thousands of my photos and exhibited them or placed them neatly in albums, but of the many that have appeared in The Sun News’ Readers Gallery, I would have deposited in recycling bins many months ago.

They really are absolutely boring and definitely repetitive. Come on, use the space for … whatever.
