Cyano time

It's Sunday and I've been back from Bangladesh for almost a fortnight and I've got a pile of work to catch up on. So, what do I do? Procrastinate... it's what I do best. I decide to go through my 'alternative processes' box as I'm teaching a class how to do some alternative printing techniques over the coming couple of months. Find some unexposed cyanotype coated paper and before you know it, I'm outside taking advantage of another hot sunny, summer's day here in Perth. So, here is one of the results. Original image shot on 5x4 Ilford fp-4 film and printed using 'Art Spectrum' 210gsm, 'Draw & Wash' water colour paper, then tea toned in a bath of Liptons 'Black' tea.
