For the better part of a week, I struggled over which images would be included in my ONTARIO book. In the end, I selected about 10% of the original 2,300 images I had preselected. Part of the difficulty was choosing images that would work well opposite each other on a page spread. I was mindful of the geography, the seasons, colors, format and big landscape vs intimate views vs closeups, which proved to be a difficult task indeed. However, I achieved what I set out to do. Selecting the images and laying them out is the most difficult part of producing any book but it is also the most enjoyable, with the exception of producing the images and the actual experience itself. I meet with my publisher in a couple of days to finalize the layout. The next tasks include writing a preface, the captions and the stories behind the photographs. Plenty of work left to do!
Above are a few additional images that will appear in the book.
