a new muse

birth of a muse

New Orleans is a great city to live in if you like taking pictures of statues. This one's name is "Birth of a Muse" and it sits on Terpsichore Street. It's the first new public work of art the city has commissioned since well, you know.

The muse is an 8x8 darkroom print made in our very own freezing cold antique bathtub. Best effort so far from trying to print 120. The scanner doesn't do it justice. I think I'm gonna put it on the wall.

I've had several people ask why I'm using film, and there's not much of a reason other than the opportunity showed up, and the darkroom stuff is something I've always wanted to know how to do.

It's also something to do while I attempt to distract myself from the search for my own muse. Because they never show up when you're looking.

Happy new year, y'all.
