It took this long to get these pictures to the Newswire simply because I shot so many (644 images), so it's taken quite some time to sift through them all and pick out the good stuff.
I'll be publishing them in several parts, as there is a lot of pictures to work through. They will also be in the order they were taken in each installment, so hopefully some kind of visual narrative will emerge as a result.
