Backyard Birdsong (Hummingbird One) 2019, Today's Coolphoto 05/19/2019

Back when we were young my friend Bob and I would schlep around with our cameras. We drifted apart, but after years of working and raising families we got back together. He has a very clever setup in his yard for taking hummingbird pictures which I copied for my yard. Today I waited for the birds to show. Hours I waited. And waited. And waited. Just as I texted Bob that the birds did not come, this little one appeared. He darted into the wisteria in early evening, and then quickly came into focus.

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.
