A photogenic drawing negative of Orchidea leaves.
After an extensive photographic experimentation, William Henry Fox Talbot created these studies. Though they are a bit splotchy and uneven in tone (due to an issue with unstable fix), they are the foundation on which Talbot perfected the first negative/positive photographic process: the calotype.

Finally a couple of my photos from my trip across Canada. A 10 day journey by car and camping at rest stops and campgrounds along the way. It was a wonderful, long and inspiring trip!
B.C. is breathtakingly beautiful. It’s truly unreal to look around you and see such beauty every single day you wake up.
I was camping here for the past 2 days.
