This is one of the few older prints I have that I can actually date. The picture was taken with a Mimiyaflex in 1980 in Boquillas, Mexico. Boquillas is across the Rio Grande River from Big Bend National Park in Texas. I took a row boat across to Mexico, walked about a mile or so to the town. Printed on Ilford multi-grade resin coated paper.
I found this scale in an abandoned warehouse in the San Joaquin Valley in Central California. Can't remember the exact location. Shot with a Mamaiya C22 in very low light, a fairly thin negative, printed on Ilford multi-grade resin coated paper.

This one used a rather easy technique. I have a couple of very old, out of date, envelopes of Ilford multi-grade resin coated paper. I made a very quick exposure, using the same negative on all four prints, and then painted the developer on the print. The negative was exposed with a Holga camera. This palm tree is outside the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Broad Building. Photographed 2014.

I shot this with the Mamiya C22. The film was out of date, as in the use by date was 20 years earlier. I shot it in my apartment, at night, lit with a 40 watt bulb. The negative came out very thin. I printed it on Ilford multi-grade, matte, fiber base paper.
