On the assumption that you're not totally bored with them yet...  

…here’s, you know, another photo. But first, the backstory:

Okay, so back on 13 June 2007 I posted More Thoughts on Photography in which, startlingly enough, I shared some of the thinking that goes into, or is behind, some of my photography. In the process, I mentioned a series of photos I’d taken in Stillwater, Minnesota.

A couple of people responded that they’d be interested in seeing that series of photos, so on 17 June 2007 I posted You know my methods, Watson… in which I showed thumnails of the first four images and had a link to the ImageEvent album with all of the photos from that series along with a caution which I will repeat here: “As you look, please remember it is a complete set of raw images (not color-corrected, cropped, or otherwise brought up to presentation standards) in the order in which they were taken … under normal circumstances I would not post or otherwise offer the majority of them for viewing, as there are only a handful I think are worthy of display.”

So. Well. Anyway. The point is that here, at long last, is one of the photos from that session, all done-up and prettified—color-corrected and otherwise brought up to presentation standards (but not cropped). I hope you like it.

"...(but not cropped)"

Therein lies the genius of this photo for me, and the fact that it's not cropped reflects your fondness and comfort with 35mm slide film. 'Cause even black and whites could be cropped in the darkroom, while color prints and enlargements at any of the standard sizes are not full-frame phenomena.

The details at every edge make this photograph work for me. They're the frame that draws me in and puts me right there

Thank you.
