Hi Phillippe,

The frames are just from the filed-out negative holders in my D2, something 
I did years ago and still like to do: shoot and print the whole negative. An 
affectation, I suppose. And there is detail in the shadows on the prints, I 
just can't get them to translate too well to the screen.

And Peter,

As I took the Upper Street picture, I felt the shadow of Geebee, but had no 
filters with me. I am packing some for the next ride down Upper Street. 
Speaking of filters, Geebee's latest, #295 attracted an interesting comment 
from Rabiner about the lighting: It does look like Hollywood set lighting, 
flat, open and rather magical.

Thanks for the comments.
