Serendipity last week.  I was with a class processing film, and while waiting for them to finish I started going through the negatives in the trash...you wouldn't believe the beautiful images people throw away. A few of the students came to join and we're all hovering over the light table going through negatives and one exclaimed..."Hey is that You!?"

It was! I have no idea when this picture was taken or by whom.  It appears I am running up the main school staircase and I'm almost certain the person on the frame beneath me is my office-mate.

How bizarre to find someone's discarded image/memory of us, it was like finding a clue, and the culprit had to be near...

Good news happening at the Walker and Open Field

Into the Blue - Cyanotype Photography - July 21 and August 18, 11-2pm

Did you know that you don’t need a camera to make a photograph? The Cyanotype is one of the oldest forms of photography and is easily recognized by its deep Prussian blue tone.  Come explore this fun and easy form of image making using only sunlight and water by creating beautiful and unique photograms with found objects from around the field.

I am very fortunate to be hosting these fun cyanotype events, we've got all sorts of great things planned.  Not to mention, if we're really lucky the insanely overly qualified photographer Teri Fullerton will be there to help out as well! 

Check us out on Facebook here and here.

I have long had a passion for Cyanotypes and I am happy to be able to share them with others.
