Last week's episode of The L Word (which is still mediocre at best) led to curlycutie, mister_biv, and I discussing photography. Which led to me babbling about darkroom manipulation, and how it can dramatically effect the final product. I referenced an Ansel Adams picture of Georgia O'Keeffe and Orville Cox that had to be printed from a badly damaged negative.
I didn't want to dig out the book with the picture then, but here it is now
If you're interested in Ansel's words on the pic and the process(scanned in using ocr, so there are some goofs),

This pic and passage are shamelessly borrowed from The Ansel Adams Guide Book 1: Basic Techiniques of Photography by John P. Schaefer (revised and updated edition).
If you look in the background, you'll see my new toy, cradled within the completely awesome and portable altec lansing speakers.
Behind the cut you'll find another hair pic, and a picture of my wonderfully puffy photo assistant. He just couldn't resist "helping" me with my project.

what do you think of the new userpic? Slightly out of focus, but I loved the look on my face.
P.S. coell made it here today after all! I love spending time with her, and miss not having her close to me anymore.
