From segment, fragment, he can reconstruct the whole

Well, today I finally managed to upload the rest of the photographs from yesterday to Flickr. It must have been a temporary hiccup with FlickrExport for Aperture. All these photographs were taken during a walk just before sunset.

Posting title is from the poem Part for the Whole by Robert Francis. I like this poem, and I think it is rather relevant to photography. Maybe even self-evident... though I suspect there is a deeper meaning to the poem than the first reading shows.

By the way, as someone who occasionally falls into gear obsession (e.g., Canon 5D Mark III, Olympus OM-D E-M5, Nikon D800, ...), the posting "So, here’s a thread from" is priceless: "A real carpenter could have done that with rusty wire and a rock. It’s not about the equipment, it’s about the carpenter." (Via George Barr.)
