    1. Thanks. Making these pictures is fun. Feels like being a movie director (and writer, and camera operator).

    1. Thanks Naomi. Your comment made me wonder if the George Orwell quote I had originally intended to be an ‘aside’ for the picture actually distracted from the photo itself – so I deleted it (I hope that’s okay, I usually do not change posts once they are online). As for your lines, I agree. I think that training ourselves to distinguish fact from judgement is a daily excercise – whenever we hear or read the news, we have to analyse them in this respect. Maybe reading fiction on the other side helps, too…
