They were all great, so it seemed like a good metric to use.

It reminds me of a Japanese woodblock print that I purchased in the late 70s while stationed there with the Air Force nurse corps.

I believe it is in the cafe at the Musee d' Orsay in Paris. I have eaten in it's magical presence.

Great contrast, great flow. Only in black and white.
All the pictures are so worthy of praise.
