A great blog! Thank you for your work.

Mark Steinmetz is a friend of mine and a fine and well published photographer. Unfortunately, he is not Marc Steinmetz, who did this essay.

Thanks Loki. My mistake; I appreciate you drawing my attention to that. And thanks to Mark for pointing out my other error; am on the road, and rushed the post in my hotel room--have learned my lesson about that! All errors should now be fixed. And Kyle, glad you're enjoying the blog!
