This window was clearly on its last hinge. So much so that half of it didn't even have a hinge! Part of what attracted me is also the texture on the surrounding wall with the exposed brick. The word dilapidated immediately came to mind. This is one aspect of travel that I love most: the humbling knowledge of how lucky I really am to have a roof over my head and windows that don't leak.

Every photographic print is individually cropped, color/density balanced, and then printed on traditional photo paper (AKA: Silver Gelatin). These are not inkjet prints and come with the same longevity and quality that is still associated with an "old fashion" print. Each image is printed to preserve the original crop and because of this, sometimes the image does not enlarge fully to the paper/frame size. Please review the information above to see how large the actual image size will be relative to the paper size. By not forcing the image to fit the size of the paper, the composition and integrity of the image is preserved. This also allows a margin for proper matting.
Matting is museum-quality, book-style with a 4-ply mat window and 2-ply backing. Both boards are 100% rag board that are P.A.T. archival certified and have a pH of 9.0. The two pieces are hinged together on the long side with archival tape. The image is then taped on the corner
