Travels in B&W

My first job in the photographic field was as a darkroom technician. I would sit in the darkroom for hours at a time learning the art of the silver halide. When digital photography and Adobe Photoshop crept in and slowly one megabyte at a time, replaced the sprocketed rolls of film and the boxes of paper that had one corner of the stack exposed because you left the lid off when you opened the door, it took a while for me to accept. Not until I saw that the designers of Photoshop used emojis of dodge and burn tools did I embrace digital and treat my screen like a Beseler enlarger. I’ve selected a few of my favorite places to be to join the old and the new and get back to my printer.
