hip to be square

Having worked with a square format for years and years, I am still quite partial to it. The digital Hasselblad is not like it's 6 x 6 analog ancestor; it is 6 x 7. I am growing to like that arrangement, but on occasion I find that nothing but the lovely square will do.

It simply means I have to pre-visualize the square when I'm shooting. Sometimes it doesn't work.

But other times it does.

I especially love the wood carrying woman square - beautiful colour.

Went to read about Douglas and spent an hour reading and taking in all the beautiful faces. Henry is too much. Great work.!
