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

...Judy, it's case sensitive, and when I click on the link it does work, another route might be that you try this one: http://tinyurl.com/43zn9x

(BTW this is the second image, with some more platinum density, and one coat of gum with burnt sienna and a bit of deep yellow azo. I will try to make a more detialed page some day

The last of the Mohicans?  (I think now that's a NYC telephone exchange.)

..that is it indeed..

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...
