Just finished a grueling stretch of darkroom work putting together 31 11×14 lith prints for an exhibition that was sprung on me. They are now on their way to the exhibitor and I’m enjoying a well-deserved beer. I’m relatively new to lith printing and so screw-ups are many. Most of the failures are discarded but I liked these five and decided to cut the 8.5-square-inch images out and send them as Xmas cards. They just fitted the scanner, so I thought I’d put them up. The mistakes are mostly wrong exposure or crap on the negatives. Click on images to enlarge.
