Photochrome prints are colorized images produced from black and white photo negatives that are directly transferred onto lithographic printing plates. The process was invented in the 1880s by Hans Jakob Schmid (1856 - 1924). It was popular in the 1890s, when color photography was in existence but still commercially impractical.

Weekend Reflection: Before the Virus Laid Me Low

Reflection from three weeks ago

Mosaic Monday: Idea Seedling

Oh me oh my!

An idea germinated in my head today -
more like a command from Spirit.
Images just keep popping into my mind
like a big mosaic.


I'm overwhelmed with possibilities
but inspired to shine.
Brightly.
Bloom on!
