Danika reaching to pet the orphan lambs.

I made this image in Montana in 2004. I made it with a real camera, loaded with real film. Then I processed it with chemicals in my darkened bathroom; I enlarged and printed it in a darkroom at Santa Monica College. Now I have scanned it, and much of the magic of it is lost and the rest will depend on your computer screen, and the angle of your chair. Sigh.

I am as much a fan of the instant digital age as anyone. But there is something about silver gelatin prints vs pixels and ink. Sigh.

Some days I do a lot of sighing about days gone by. Today is one of them.
