    I made a few of wet plates yesterday. It looks a long way is ahead of me, but I don't remember my heart beating so hard as yesterday in darkroom during developing.

    I used for these 18 x 24 cm alumitypes Mamut photos old worlhorse collodion and power developer, fixend in 30% hyp. Varnished

    Black strip is is from insufficient volume of silver bath in tank
