    I've been photographing the slow decay of these books for over two years.

    @oldhat- Awesome stuff, especially love the market and brick building shots. Do you work in B&W a lot? Looks great in the city.

    @DowneastDredge - Thanks! I've actually just been slowly getting in to Black & White. It's a lot of fun to work with and makes for some really awesome shots.

    @Mark R - Thank you! I was totally blown away by all the gritty detail in that district. I'll probably be putting that one up for sale soon as well as a couple of others on my photography print page

    Went on a photo day last month around one of my oldest stomping grounds in London - Holborn. If it ever stops raining, the next one will be around Highgate Cemetery.

    Holborn and around

    Did a short conceptual shoot today. Effects are all non-digital, messing around with compounding lens filters. Only digital tweaking was resizing the images. Two harvests so far:

    broken

    break yourself

    Need to start shooting more. I'm all digital now, but I spent years doing darkroom work. I miss having a darkroom intensely. The process, from start to finish, is intoxicating. Arranging the negative in the enlarger and setting up the exposure. Determining how long to expose, where to burn, where to dodge, arranging your hands as if you're involved in some kind of secret handshake in the dark. Handling photosensitive paper like protected arcane writings that should only be taken out at the right point in the ritual. The harried few seconds of exposure; no turning back. You're committed. Watching the image slowly form in the tray with developer. The smells of the fumes.

    I miss it so much. But digital, of course, has its advantages as well.

    Those are all quite nice, Allana. Are you a fan of Stephen Shore?
