Learning about cyanotype is learning about shadows and light, which is not one of my strong suits, so sometimes things I think are going to make an awesome print end up being an amorphous blob.

And then there are ferns. 

I honestly didn’t think I’d derive any pleasure from making prints of things from the natural world, but, boy oh boy, are ferns amazing.
