I expanded in an e-Mail to Ted and Jem. My style was sloppy fast 
work, well suited to parties and other gatherings associated with 
alcohol and University, and I would like to buckle down a bit more 
and improve the quality control aspects and background knowledge in 
Photography. I may be fighting a losing battle, but I'm not going to 
many parties any more, so I'll soon run out of subjects ;-) Time is 
the biggest enemy of the amateur.
