China rough edit completed

I am a bit compulsive and even when I have few other things to do, I still deferred to work on the rough edit of this body of work. Which is now done. Whew! So the final tally is 190 photographs winnowed down from the original 4,000 photographs I made while in China. Not all... Continue Reading →

At that time I had converted 108 images to Black & White, and now I am up to 160 converted photographs. Musically I can sense a number of different riffs on this body of work so I...
