Here's a shot I snapped the other day. It's the view I get when I step outside my front door, of the old sheds that in my grandfather's day were part of his butchery business. The largest barn was where the animals were slaughtered and a very rusty old winch still lives there. Nowadays, at this time of year, the swallows have a natural perching place on the wire rope.

There are of course many different toning chemicals available to the traditional darkroom printer, as well as Lith Printing, which I am really looking forward to experimenting with. This is kind of how I would expect a Lith print to look, again using a preset PS duotone.
I think this photograph works really well in B&W and it might be one of the first I print if I ever get back in the darkroom. The sink is all but finished - but I'm giving it shed-loads of gloss paint before I apply some yacht varnish, so it's another couple of weeks away from completion. But it's getting there - honest.
