~ After visiting traditional river towns in Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces, there was a 5-hour train ride back to Beijing from Suzhou. Thinking about the tightly organized lives of canal dwellers, I was inspired to reorganize the Zenfolio Gallery through consolidation of like topics into 'Groups'. Doing so reduces visual clutter.
Editing photos from the river towns, to prepare them for uploading to the Zenfolio Gallery, it is readily apparent that the fine art of judicious cropping of images is a major component of my photography. It's not so much to remove undesirable features as it is to tighten each composition.
