 I often had to pass over photographs because in a mass of animals invariably one would be wandering in the wrong direction, thereby disrupting the pattern I was trying to achieve. Today the ability to digitally alter this disruption is at hand. 
 For me making a digital photo is like making a watercolor... It’s not a painting, and it’s not a photo. It’s something altogether new.
