:)Applying the credo of make the best with what you have at hand, these are shots of the set-up that I used for the “On ice” series. I had the cooperation of the weather with few cold days
-10C (14F) then it got warmer so I am out looking for stuff now.
What you do not see in the pictures is that the ice slab does slide over the sloping glass surface. What I did on the last couple of shots I put a large screw on each corner of the ice slab so that the ice would seat on top of them, while melting the screws thread would grab into the ice and prevent the sliding. It worked ok; also the melting was less then what I thought; at room temperature and in 25 minutes of exposure I collected less then 50cc of water.
The alternative of course is to use the house freezer, but considering what happened with my carbon printing experience I thought better. :)

Thanks fellows, black beans salad is a favored side dish in Delio’s residence. Aren’t you glad you are far away? :) :)

Wow. Thanks for posting this. It gives me way more appreciation of your "on ice" series. Personally, I think I'll stick to architecture.
