Robert Frost - A Tribute to the Source (read)
Frost was at work on a new book. Poems from Derry were still

Photo Assignment - Focus on the subject
Following up from last week, where you worked on Focus and

to be drawn to the subject because it is in critical focus.
If you are photographing a face, the whole face does not
have to be in focus... but the eyes should be.
