You're welcome, Bob - And the fact that Szarkowski can express it so
much more eloquently than I explains why he was the curator of
photography at the MOMA and is one of the giants in the field, and I
shooting off my mouth on the LUG. :-)

BD wrote recently -

But, as I tell my students, God save us from "all the proper
compositional elements and lighting." What those far too often make for
is... mundane crap. :-)

And John Szarkowski recently wrote -

"it's not a matter of knowing what you mean and then thinking of a way 
to say it. It's a way of discovering in the process of trying to say 
something that you find what it is you mean."

Thanks, guys.
