"I’ve had so many knives stuck into me, when they hand me a flower I can’t quite make out what it is. It takes time."
Charles Bukowski, “Screams From the Balcony” (via lovely—delight)
— Charles Bukowski
This incense holder will always remind me of the summer I spent out in Sparks Lake/Bend, OR.
this is the last plate i made last weekend, 5x7” / 12,7 × 17,8 cm. usually the wet plates need to be exposed and developed within 15 min but i wanted to see how far this time can be stretched. this is a 25 min exposure made about one hour after sunset with very little light in the sky. the yellow-orange lights from the city have almost no effect on this photographic material that is only sensitive to blue light.
