That reminds me, I meant to comment on your carbon prints, and thank you for sharing them. I found these interesting in that they didn't seem, to my eyes, to be as continuous-tone as the back-exposed gum prints on transparency film you showed a year or two ago (could it have been that long?). Do you think it's the thickness of the glass, or that the negatives aren't a similar contrast range, or is it just the scans that aren't picking up subtleties of tone?
