After I cobbled together the previous entry, I showed it to former IDS photographer and current Washington Post assistant managing editor for photography Michel du Cille during a critique yesterday morning.

After his critique, I learned that I had made something passable. Every bit of advice he gave me was pricelessly useful, so I went back and edited the series based on his advice and my own fresh eye. (Mainly his advice, admittedly.)

The seven photos in the story appear below. Hopefully they are less repetitious and they more faithfully follow du Cille's oft-said outline for a photo story: wide, medium, tight, panoramic, detail.

Winget and Kingsolver wait for results.
