I'm sure this is an indication of bad photography, but sometimes I am so intent on my subject that I miss all the unwanted and extraneous information that turns up in the image. Half of the time I don't even see all the detritus until I have uploaded the photo to my computer....and then the difference between what I thought I saw and what the camera recorded is quite unanticipated. I'm stirred by the colors, shapes, motion, drama and light and will try anything to capture those situations in all their exciting permutations. So, when things get messy, I crop!
