Thank you. I'm still trying to decide if this warrants desolatelondon status...

That's a beautiful shot (and this has been a hell of a first roll)! At some point, we're going to have to figure out how to connect you with one of those Epson scanners I posted about (unless you already have access to a good drum scanner). I'm guessing this is full-frame side-to-side? I'd love to see a high-resolution scan toward the possibility of producing a piezography print if you're keen to do so.

Another piece of the frankenprinter is waiting for me at the office; it'll do up to 13x44" on roll stock when it's ready. If it works, I'll offer friends like you (i.e., friends with excellent eyes) a make-a-print, keep-a-print deal on archival enlargements of images of choice.

My first two Holga rolls (about three-fourths of which were shot at a carny at night onto slow film) should come back today. We'll see what happened...

I don't have access to a good scanner, no. These were the digital prints I got off the developers, and they were disappointingly low-res, I have to say. Yes, this is full-frame side-to-side. I'm keen to print it when I get a chance, so I'll happily take you up on that offer. Thank you.

Looking forward to your results!

I like that a lot. Lots to be proud of there with the bands of light and darkness and the bird in the foreground.

It's always good to know that kneeling down in wet grass, waiting for a swan to make its majestic and somewhat erratic way into the right part of the picture, has paid off. Thank you.

This is one of my favourite photographs that you've taken. It's beautiful.

Thank you. I feel it's also very English, with the pastoral directly abutting the urban.
