"Go play in the snow, child trees".

Snow Tree Mother and her two Children. One of the negs that had the damp get in to a whole roll and left me with about four salvageables.

Great shot, I would prefer without the frame, it doesn't need it.

The "frame" is in fact the negative holder on the enlarger. This is a scan of a print. I filed the negative metal housing on my old Wetzler Leitz enlarger down a tad to create a unique confirmation that this is one of my photographic prints. The omission of the frame would have required a crop whilst in the darkroom. I never crop if I can help it. What you see is what you get. I use film, no digital, and prefer basic techniques. I had the same ethic/philosophy with my pottery Celtic travellers and they were recognised straight away.

Thanks for this information and apologies for my ignorance! The image is great.

Hi david,

No need for apologies. We all have different styles and I've learned a lot from all of the group here on Pentax User. I like that you called it a great shot. Gives me confidence. Cheers .

Thankyou Maria for your comment too.

I like art and this fits into that category IMHO
