As one can tell by glancing through Feuilleton, most of what I do is in not  what some call "straight photography".  As an exercise to demonstrate that I can do that kind of work, I looked through my archives for thematically similar raw images that I could reprocess in shades of gray.  So the initial version of the gallery was monochromatic, "straight" photographs.  Then I realized that some of the images work far better in color, and later abstraction crept in, motivated by the conviction that sometimes an abstract image is better in conveying the feeling of a place than any snapshot.  In particular, if you've ever been in Petersbogen, you will see what I mean.
