Notes & Errata re the photography—I found that I had a very difficult time with this particular setup for this month’s book pics. I’m not entirely sure what was so difficult about capturing this scene, but it took the entirety of the month to “get it right the first time.” Book No. 57 was the only book that I shot once and captured “correctly” [in this singular instance] in that single shot. Most months I can find my stride by book two, no later than book three, and it’s nearly unheard of to take seven books to “get there.” #inremembrance
