The family beach sat about twenty feet above the high tide mark and looked across Carr Inlet to the town of Home. We faced west toward the Olympic Mountains, and the afternoon was perfect for swimming and fooling around. In the morning the yard was shaded by enormous fir, alder, maple and madrona trees, leaving a small spot was up in the corner. This is where Elizabeth would read, with Ethel the family dog at her feet.

Vintage prints are made within a year of the photographs create date. My usual practice is to print within a few days or weeks of exposure. What you see is a scan of the actual print that is for sale. Price does not include shipping or taxes.

Please note that vintage prints are imperfect. They’re old, after all. If you’re worried about it, bring it up. I’ll do my best to answer your questions.

Vintage - When I print the photograph within a year of the original exposure, that becomes a Vintage Print.
Archival Pigment - When I print in my studio using computer technology with pigmented inks on acid and lignin free paper, I call that an Archival Pigment Print.
Silver - When I print in my darkroom on gelatin silver paper, that is a Silver Print. These prints are double weight on a cotton fiber base.
