Poem about Land and Sky

25.00

I would enjoy this print for the repeating pattern of land and sky punctuated by trees. I didn’t even notice it until I had to write this. Sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly.

Image was made at the Cornell Plantations in Ithaca, New York.

My dog, Big Joe, is panting by my seat and his breath smells.

The Cyanotype process was discovered by Sir John Hershel in 1842 and used to duplicate drawings and notes as “blueprints”. This was used well into the 20th century for the same purpose. A cyanotype’s primary characteristic is its deep blue color. 

A cyanotype is very archival. Images produced in the mid 1800’s have retained their original tones and densities. For such a humble process, cyanotypes really are “true blue”.
