The two photographs below are from 2005.  They were made with my first view camera (ToyoView45D), and a very modest entry level lens (Rodenstock Geronar 210).  I had also just acquired an enlarger for 4x5 negatives, and couldn't wait to print these two.  But, the full negatives had problems I didn't know how to solve, and they have never been scanned or printed until now. (these are scans, but prints to follow immediately).  I have a sense of what to do with the prints that I didn't know back then.  The challenge is to achieve in the darkroom what is so ridiculously simple in Photoshop, but nothing I do there isn't a legitimate darkroom technique as well.  We'll see how well I do!
