A quiet start, then down to the photo cave this afternoon to run a few of the Torokina negatives through a tray of dev to start getting them ready to proof and figure out what I stuffed up. The list of mistakes will be long (as always).

Contact printing can be a wonderfully simple and direct means of producing a finished picture. They are smooth, delicate things that sit in the hand comfortably without being awkward. It is the method that moved me back to smaller prints years ago, and since then I have worked down under 10inch even with enlargements (though who knows, maybe 10 foot long prints are just around the corner).

Good times ahead (read: more printing… so much more printing!).
