Wonderful little beach town in the middle of the outback in South Australia.  Venus Bay.  Seriously a 10 hour drive from already remote Adelaide.  My kids did some growing up there and this was the day that Gracie got bitten by the one legged pelican.  She was fine.

Leica M3

Ilford HP5+ shot @400 ISO

Venus Bay, SA

Many of these images were captured on traditional film, shot on a Leica M3 or Rolleiflex - the negative scanned.  Others are digital photos, shot with a Leica Monochrom or Sony and adjusted in a digital darkroom. I’ve spend a good bit of my adult life in a darkroom - I’m interested in the best possible classic print, informed by the process of the traditional darkroom.  Digital Silver Imaging of Boston MA has a unique Ilford system that can take my adjustments and deliver a Silver Gelatin print - Silver prints will be stamped with our seal of authenticity.  A traditional archival bad assed darkroom print.
