Since the list is in a image sharing mode (which is great, I love to see the work of others!) I would like to share a first result (it is still work in progress) of my regretfully infrequent alt printing adventures:Oh drat... getting Henk's site on the 2nd try led me to imagine I could get another, but it wasn't to be... Here's the message the dread machine sent:

Possible causes for this error:
* the link you followed points to a page that doesn't exist (anymore)
* you haven't made your homepage yet
* you made a typo in the link you used
* you're mixing upper- and lower cases
I don't think I made a typo because I copied your URL on the clipbaord, Cor. I tried again making it all lower case. No help. Any suggestions??? (I do really want to see it-- I mean short of swimming over. : ((((
The details, for those interested:The last of the Mohicans? (I think now that's a NYC telephone exchange.)
And, lest we forget, we're worshipping a form of printing they did for at least 60 years without electricity. One of my old Photo Miniature magazines (about 1904), says (in a how-to article), "If you have electricity, do.... thus and so..."
That was a jolt... I mean, so easy to forget...
BTW, Cor, score on the color test may well be beside the point. It's my understanding that stunning works in color have been done by the virtually color blind.
Best to you, too...
My idea was to print a high contrast image with platinum, and than fill in with gum to lower the contrast and to add colour (with a low contrast negative).
