Today’s featured photo of the day! BONUS: Best of California

Here is today’s featured photo. The December event is coming…”12 Days of Christmas”…Twelve nice shots Christmas related photos! The event will start on Friday, December 13th, so come join us every day!! Meanwhile I am continuing my featuring photos from California in the interim. I am wrapping up the feature with a best of California: Photos corrected in the darkroom. Here is a great shot of the city of Los Angeles in the background of a mountain from one of the lookout points in Griffith Park. I dropped the darkroom exposure to yield true blacks in the shadow, and to brighten the washed buildings in downtown LA from the haze with the assistance of the polarizer. This was a truly amazing fix!! Date – November 1991.
