Palladium portrait…

Eyeball portrait of my dear, taken on a Hasselblad with B&W film. I scanned the neg and made a palladium print with a digital negative. The print is much better in person, my scanner was intent on enhancement of paper grain and adding blotches!

Green, lovely green…

Back from Appalachia, it was green, it was mistly and I got rained on a bit. Tried to bring back some desperately needed rain for Texas. That did not work, sadly.

All shots were taken on a Hasselblad 201f with slide film.

Tattered luna moth at the Moses Cone gravesite.

 

Hiking under giants.

 

Cemetery in Foscoe, distant relations inside. Also, "don't weep for me my husband dear, I am not dead, but sleeping here."

 

 

Forest reclaiming...

 

 

Ripe, delicious blackberries in this field. Two different kinds, wild and not. Apples too.

 

 

St. John's in Valle Crucis, for a visit with family much missed.

 

 

 

This is what happens when I overexpose a shot and then scan it to see if there is anything at all on the negative. Err, make that positive. Slide film, y'all.

 

 

Scanned things brought back.

Comfort, Texas

I escaped the city for a few days along Cypress Creek in Comfort, Texas. It was only a tiny bit cooler there, but a world away in all other ways. Mornings were picture taking, days were junking and reading. Nights were sleeping under pecan branches with moony face and two different types of fireflies. One of which had a blue flash that stayed with us into the night long after the others were spent. The first two were taken on a Hasselblad with b & w film, the last two are scans.

 

 

Along Cypress Creek...

 

Murk wood, waking dreaming, dreaming drowning. A print of this one in the works...

 

 

Leaves found...

 

Also, this amazing tiny gutta percha daguerreotype case with a bearded gent inside.

Winter

It’s Winter at the Pecan Grove, my favorite secret place in Austin. If I could build a little hidey-hole shack at the Pecan Grove and live with the deer, birds and cacti, I so would. Unfortunately, being a public park and all, I can’t do that. And the speed boats blaring past on the nearby water way would drive me distracted. It’s still a lovely place. Taken with a Hasselblad on slide film.
