Hi Dick,

Thanks for looking.

Your comment about cropping has me thinking. In general, I crop quite a 
bit. Some of the images I post are only 1/3 or even 1/4 of the original 
frame. If you have noticed looser images lately, it may either be 
because I have been in a hurry the past few weeks (family visit, lots of 
work etc.) or, in the case of the Hasselblad shots, because I wanted to 
keep the full frame. In any event, thanks for reminding me to pay more 
attention to this.

Of the week 21 pictures, the first one is heavily cropped, the second 
one very slightly cropped, and all the square images are full-frame. All 
the week 20 images are cropped to varying degrees.
