This will be the last “Part Deux” posting, as it represents the last batch of photos from this particular trip.
We’re back to the Leica & Summitar combination here. All together I selected eighteen photos out of somewhere around 180. This was not a predetermined ratio, but rather the result of a fairly lengthy culling process that pared it down first to somewhere around 30-35 photos, then into successively smaller groups until I felt it was as tight as I could make it and still preserve the integrity of the group.
I confess I am a bit curious about how this selection comes across to other viewers. Recognizing that, without seeing the photos that didn’t make the final cut, it’s hard to make an informed judgement, I nonetheless would be interested to hear your impressions. Do the photos work together as a group? In other words, do they help you to form an overall impression of the places and times depicted? Do they produce an emotional response as a group? Are there any photos that you feel could be removed from the final selection?
