Today’s featured photo of the day! Obscure Darkroom Magic

Here is today’s featured photo. I am featuring an extra special event of featuring a reflection of my favorite part of being in the darkroom…making art out of a regular photo! Here is a set of photos of Saganashkee Slough in the Palos area of the Cook County Forest Preserves in Illinois. Date – 1981.

  1. These are very cool pictures! I’ve either been there or rode by thousands of time until I moved to the Northside. And I can’t wait to move back!
