Having an extensive archive of negatives is a treat when making new ones isn't easy or even possible. On a dreary and unpromising day, time in the darkroom or on the computer scanning some that haven't received much attention is a pleasure. Some negatives may percolate for years until, when seeing them again, there is renewed enthusiasm for what prompted me to make them in the first place. This is one of those lost children that is now back in the family. Abstract to the point that I've lost the memory of its original orientation, I've chosen to make it vertical. Horizontal, though, wouldn't be wrong either.
