It’s been a while… I decided to switch off for Christmas holidays. No Facebook, email or blogging. Now I still haven’t decided wether to get back into it or not. I did so much and so little! Relaxing, eating fantastic English and Swedish xmas food, board games, read 4 (yes four!) books and plenty more. Almost finished knitting a huge blanket, tidied(didn’t happen before xmas) properly, fixed my moped with a new exhaust pipe and lots more. Facebook and other medias are so important for marketing but personally I could do without it. That said when I look back at my blog I am so happy with it, as a means to keep track on all the great things about living on Hönö, disasters, failures and last but most important to remind me what a mountain I climbed to get the barn up and going as a gallery. I guess the answer to my own question is there already.
Here is one of the wetplates from the other day. Some of the treasures I’ve found under the floor.The exposure is pretty bad but I made a number of glass negatives which came out great. My plan is to make Gum bichromate prints with them and have so far made one coating and it looks great!
Blog-post 100 by the way. I started out mainly to document the restoration of the barn for my own use but then it grew and spread out and now there’s a bit of everything. It is also very nice to get comments and input from other people. Amazing what an encouraging comment can do when your stuck or having a bad day! Thank you.
