Yes, that's me, 1974 camping trip, sporting a once-glittery YES T-shirt and a Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers nautural coiff, and smokin' a butt (I think). Note the very high-end sound system. That's also probably the last time I was that close to a football. Taken with my vintage (even then) Exacta Varex IIa.

This old tone-separation is to celebrate the life of Patsy, the 40-year old African Elephant who recently passed away at the Toronto Zoo. It may even be a picture of Patsy herself, I can't be sure. Looks a lot like her. She'd have been a teenager at the time.

Tone Sep. Tech Notes: The original 35mm B&W negative was projected onto 4x5 sheets of Kodalith super high contrast sheet film, at various exposures. The resulting film positives were then contact printed in turn, in register (more or less) onto a single sheet of 4x5 continuous tone sheet film. In total darkness for this part, mind you. Finally, the resulting 4x5 negative could be contact printed onto paper for the final print or prints. All in all, a rather long evening in the darkroom, or maybe a couple of evenings if it was a worknight. Given this print was done back in the Eighties, there was no Photoshop used, or even invented.

Added to the Cream of the Crop pool as my most "interesting" (according to flickr)

In the last moments before the dawn,
a tiny island eases quietly into view,
born of the swirling mist.
