The control which designers know in the print medium, and often desire in the web medium, is simply a function of the limitation of the printed page. We should embrace the fact that the web doesn’t have the same constraints, and design for this flexibility. But first, we must “accept the ebb and flow of things.”
John Allsopp, “A Dao of Web Design”

Some photographers whisper about this magical time, as if to talk about it out loud will somehow reveal a secret, parallel world which few mortals are ever privileged to visit. Whilst another group of photographers, of which I am one, exclaim loudly “what frickin’ time did you say I have to get up?”. I’m not at my best first thing.
