Bowens Bites the Dust

I absolutely hate sounding like a negative nancy with all these "the sky is falling" type posts, but I may be on to something with my feelings on the state of the photography industry. PhotoRumors is reporting that Bowens, makers of professional lighting equipment, has gone into liquidation. 

Dang. I didn't see this one coming as they've been around forever.  Looks like they've fallen on hard times and have now gone the way of Calumet and Photoflex. I'm sure photographers can get some great deals at the moment, so better hop on that. Such a shame though.

Farewell Bowens. I hope whatever you guys do next is a homerun.
