Living the Dream—25 years on.

Tracking the Light on Silver . . .

Yesterday, November 20, 2015, I located my notebook from August 1990. I opened it at random, trying to find some information on photographs I made on Donner Pass that year. Instead I found this observation dated August 7th:

I think digital photography is the future of photography in several areas, but to some extent silver photography will always exist.

Today, I processed two rolls of Fuji Across 100 that had been sitting on my desk for more than year.

Among the photographs was this self-portrait I exposed at Connolly Station, Dublin on April 21, 2014.

Exposed using a Nikon F3 with 50mm lens on Fuji Across black & white film; processed in HC110 (dilution B) for 4 minutes 45 seconds; negatives toned in selenium and scanned using an Epson Perfection V600 flatbed scanner.
Exposed using a Nikon F3 with 50mm lens on Fuji Acros 100 black & white film; processed in HC110 (dilution B) for 4 minutes 45 seconds; negatives toned in selenium and scanned using an Epson Perfection V600 flatbed scanner.

The real lesson here: take notes.
