The Blimp! The Blimp!The Blimp! The Blimp! Platinum and Palladium on Arches Platine paper.

I'm slowly scaling up my operation. Something you don't just leap into when you're dealing with platinum as mistakes can be costly. However now I have a lovely new batch of Arches Platine paper to play with I thought it was time. This print is about nine inches square on a sheet that is roughly 12" x 16".

The image itself was taken on the Streets of Manchester (England) with a Rolleiflex 3.5F, medium format camera, scanned and enlarged onto a digital negative.

A handful of you out there may recognise the Captain Beefheart reference in the title.

I'm now avidly trying to get a picture of a squid eating dough in a polyethylene bag but you don't get many of those in the north west of England. ;o)
