That is a fascinating article just from the quality of the photographs especially the compositions.

I just wish the photo-editor didn't just HDR everything. Sometimes imperfect shadows and highlights can enhance the quality of photographs.

Thanks for this. I use General pencils and very fine they are too (apart from the useless erasors) It is nice to see a family owned, artisan business still going strong in the US. Their packaging is the coolest ever too!

Fascinating! I enjoyed the photo story immensely, but didn't see why they had to re-cap it at the end.

I see they sell their cedar pencils on Amazon. They sound much nicer than the paper wrapped sticks my kid brings home. Probably smell nice too.
