Burn your Velvia

Geoffrey Grigson, writing about Edwin Smith photographing at all times of day:

Landscape pure or landscape with buildings - either way, landscape has a face: she is for ever altering her face. She smiles, laughs, sets into a brown study, frowns is sad; laughs and smiles again, changes from repose into excitement...I hope everyone familiar or unfamiliar with England will see and feel in these plates the proper changeability of these faces, and from north to south, east to west the variety of their features.
from England (1957)

Quite so.
