    This was a productive day. I finished two prints I've meaning to print for almost a year. Yay. Now my box of 11x14 is empty. Time to reorder....
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    Sorry, but out of curiosity, what harm comes from printing it through one side or the other? Does it really look drastically different?
    In other worlds he has
    darker days, blacker swells.
    Strokes that mix noir revenge
    on waves of grey.

    Apparently it does to some, especially the photographer who remembers "reality". In my experience, not often to those who otherwise wouldn't notice a difference... unless there is a sign with writing on it in the frame.

    You should try it sometime. Pick a few image and flip it right side left. Depending on image, it will give you totally a different impression. I heard somewhere what one perceives in this kind of translation has to do with one's background, ie. nationality and places you grew up. I forgot the details on how eastern vs western background affects how one perceives.....

    But for this particular image, it looked different enough that I found it objectionable.

    Ohhhhhh. See, here I was thinking that it would reduce contrast or something if you printed it through the dull side. I always flip negatives if I don't like the way the composition flows. Signs or text be damned.

    Good for you. I think photography should be a medium for expression. So many people get stuck.

    But that isn't too much problem here. This place is full of experiments.

    When I see a backwards sign, the first thing I think is... Oh, wetplate

    I do my best to avoid text in my compositions for this exact reason. Only serves to distract 99% of the time.
