waxed and aged

The emigrant 

Yes, yes, it's an old neg. But I found it lurking down the back of the settee in the summer parlour. It spoke to me or something like that so I had to throw it in the enlarger, shine a light through it, wave my hands about, dump the paper in chemicals, wash it, put it in some more chemicals to get the colour, dry it, wax it, crease it after a spell in the freezer then polish it. And now I can't scan it properly. Not that I could do the first bit properly either but I had fun - and that's what counts surely?

Looks like Bogey striding into the sunset..... Very good by the way.
