This spring, I've been focusing on that series of the girls on South Padre Island wearing white dresses in vast landscapes. Either the photos are no longer interesting, or I need to turn them into montages and move away from straight photographs.

I am printing dups of these Lisbon photos to take as a gift to the our many cousins, who can then scan and reproduce as they wish. Indeed, I will persevere until I have a requisite number, even though it all seems archaic to do so.

Every time I use this loaned-to-me darkroom, I feel as if it is the last time these negatives will be printed. Ever. Which in the scheme of things is not true. I can always scan and print them digitally. I say, get over this nostalgia and create something new while I have access to this darkroom.
Back in Houston with a big TO DO list and searching for a visual image breakthrough.
