This is the sixth year in which I have been pre­sent­ing some of my photos with a square crop. As pho­tog­ra­phers have knows for many decades, the 1:1 — otherwise known as square — aspect ratio can be very appealing.

When processing a photo, one technique to im­prove the image is to utilize cropping. Sometimes there are areas of the photo which are distracting and need to be cut out. In other instances, the shape of the subject is better presented by chang­ing the aspect ratio of the photo to 1:1.

In order to bring attention to the appeal of square photos, I am gathering them from where they appear in other 2017 albums and am presenting them here, set apart by themselves. There are not very many images in this collection right now, but more will be added during the year.

Fortunately, when it comes to photography, it’s not square to be square!

In addition, you can see all of my square photos together in the Square Images (All Years) conglomerate “super-​album.”
