LE SUITE GESU: CROWNING WITH THORNS: 9TH PROOF

LE SUITE GESU: CROWNING WITH THORNS: 7TH PROOF

I did what I planned, to really scape and burnish the plate. I think it worked. It no longer looks like an old silent movie still. That’s good. Maybe it looks like an old glass negative photograph, but I like old glass negative photographs. Now…
