Not sure if anyone noticing, but I have been cropping 4×5. I started doing it because it is the IG vertical crop and I decided I like it alot so I started doing it on my horizontal pics too. I haven’t been sure why I like it so much.
Today I realized it is the same ratio as 8×10. When you’re in the darkroom, your main paper size is 8×10. And since I was in the darkroom for many years, this ratio/crop factor must be nostalgia. I’ll take it. And I’ll rep it.
Rush to appreciation.
Usually the messages I get are something along the lines of patience and slowing down and smelling the roses. Today it’s like, “Let’s get your nose right on top of these roses like right now immediately please. Let’s honor these roses like TODAY TODAY. NOW PLEASE.”
Hurry up to relax. Hurry up to enjoy yourself. Speed up to chill. Speed up to gratitude. Thank yourself asap.
