First calotype

First calotype
Warts, wrinkles and all. The main damage was caused by me trying to develop it by applying the developer with a cotton ball. When I realized I was damaging it, I stopped and poured it on. There are many defects in this, but there are also some good things. If you were familiar with the Sonoma Coast, you would recognized this view! This was made with a homemade box camera. I'd never used it with the lens wide open and the focus was off. Still, it's a real calotype and my first one! This picture is 5-1/3 x 9 inches.

Just south of Duncan's landing ( death rock ). I first discovered it as a place to go fishing!

ok. i always was more interested in that fingernail beach rather than the rocks.
i like the 5-1/3 x 9. how much different compared to the folding kodaks (3a?)

Hi Rodney, 5-1/3 x 9 is the same ratio as the "postcard" format used by a Kodak 3A! That's why I chose it!

I'm going to try to make another calotype today, have not decided where yet. Maybe Tolay Lake.
