Notes from the Field: Orphaned Photos

October 14, 2013

By Kyle Hoepner

One of the hardest things about editing is, well, editing—that is, pruning, leaving things out. Many of those things left out are beautiful in their own right, but in the space allotted for a particular story or in the context of the even more beautiful or important things around them, they just don’t make the cut.

So today’s post is simply a chance to un-edit a bit, and share some lovely images that have come across our desks in recent months but never quite made it into the magazine.

Finally, here’s a picture of a garden in Vermont that didn’t make it into our upcoming November–December 2013 issue. So just imagine how gorgeous are the photos that did
