The sun rises in the first quarter hour after 5AM in early June during the few weeks before the summer solstice. June is also a wet month in the Pacific Northwest. Sometimes the systems that spill from the sky at night linger as broken clouds in the morning and glow like the embers of a dying fire when the sun shines through them.
I created large format silver photographs of my home town for 20 years from 1990 through 2010. These are rich, beautifully crafted silver images processed for permanence. Vintage prints are made within a year of the photograph create date. My usual practice was to print within a few days or weeks of exposure. There are at most six prints per image; most images have three or fewer prints.
