    I bought the book a couple of weeks ago. It's by the same author that did Dream Street. Smith is one of my all time favourite photogs.

    Cheers,

    Cheers,
    I was going to by the book but was put off by it not having a CD of the music, only transcriptions of conversations.

    I am one of those who gets overly concerned with how "sharp" a lens is. This series of photos is a great lesson in the error of worshiping that false god.
