"I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for."
― Georgia O'Keeffe

The texture captured by 6cm x 7cm Kodak TMY400 film is just outstanding. This tree twisting up out of the snow, with the smaller more graceful twisting branches, up out of the white field of the (freshly fallen)snow.

When I first printed negatives, I looked for the point at which I wanted to crop to a better picture – these days, after working with medium format, I’m very reluctant to crop out a better composition. Which means getting is more closely correct when the photograph is taken. The barest trace of the film id is visible at the top, as well as the slight uptwist in the upper right corner, which is characteristic of this specific camera. I’m trying to leave the film as is, as scanned – I think it adds character.
