Yesterday's plating resulted in a few tintypes of an orchid I got as a gift a few weeks ago. I'm the worst with plants. I have an "everyone gets hit with the hose" philosophy of watering the plants in my garden. So the likely hood that this dear orchid will survive in my hands for very long is quite slim. Luckily this version will last forever! This plate was made with blue aluminum and exposed in camera to create an 8x10 tintype.
