This subject has appeared on the blog, a couple years ago when I noticed it and shot it in color digital capture. Part of the strange weather we've been having is that early summer foliage is incredibly dense and lavish. Earlier in the week I nearly finished the large format film left from the Southern Loop of last year's road trip, but I had a few sheets left over in each size. For consistency I like to develop the same number of sheets in each batch—8 for 8x10, 6 for 7x17. So, the last two mornings I went out with the big cameras in my car and looked for a few interesting subjects to shoot and bring the film counts up to normal. I thought this was a good subject to try again.
