From my trip to the Gentleman Farmer Novelist's place East of Luck, Wisconsin in May. This is a salted paper print from a digital negative printed on my lowly hp deskjet 940c. The paper is Weston’s Diploma Parchment – Plat Pal from Butler Dearden. A while back, Tom Persinger offered a few free sheets of this paper to anyone who asked. John Zokowski kindly sent a bunch of it out. I have finally gotten around to trying it.

8x10 salted paper print from a digital negative (original neg is 4x5 320 TXP)
salting solution coated with a glass rod - 2% sodium chloride, 2% sodium citrate
silver nitrate coated with a glass rod - 12% (single coat)
50 units on the Nuarc FT26V3
toned in ancient gold thiourea toner that changed it visibly, though subtly
fixed in home brewed Kodak Fixer 24 Attached files http://f295.f295.org/uploads/saltedbirches_6159.jpg (http://f295.f295.org/uploads/saltedbirches_6159.jpg)

This is awfully pretty, Earl. Sorry I missed it until now.
I have some of this paper, too, but haven't tried it yet.

Nice looking print.

Even nicer is the location.

Would be lovely at this time of year too, I'd say?

beautiful, earl! the long-scale salt tonality is to die for :)

i keep looking at my salt printing gear with longing, but so little time and now the sun has taken all its UV rays away for the winter. :(
