    I read the following this AM in "Eyes of the Heart" by Christine Valters Paintner:

    "Now to consult the rules of composition before making a picture is a little like consulting the law of gravity before going for a walk. Such rules and laws are deduced from the accomplished fact; they are the products of reflection. -- Edward Weston"

    LOL, very true for those of us already walking. But for those infants new to walking ... they all seem to think mightily and long upon those laws of gravity which may intrude upon their first steps.

    Gravity isn't just a good idea; it's the law


    As the optimist said as he fell past the 17th floor, "So far, so good."

    Cheers, Jock
