This is the start of a new series. I took a film photography class this past spring and we learned the techniques of the darkroom. I loved every second of it. I scanned some of them onto my laptop which is what you'll see in this series.

This is amazing! Truly great work -- it's well composed, it tells a story, makes wonderful use of texture and interesting lighting.
