Blue Lagoon

2008-05-09 1

Iceland surely is a strange place. One of the most astonishing sites is the blue lagoon. Well. It’s a hot thermal source. But it’s more than that. It lay in the middle of a field of volcanic stones, a rough moon-like field. The Bath is close to the seaside, that’s why there are Sea-Minerals in the water and on you. It’s a habit to put a white mineral-paste on you skin.

It ought to be good for something. But maybe it’s just a joke the Icelanders would play with the foreigners ;). The water is very hot and becomes even hotter, if you dare to go closer to the source. In the winter (which is actually the whole year) it’s even more sparkling to feel the difference between the outside and the inside temperatures. Iceland is lucky about their hot sources. Did you know that they just take their natural hot water to heat their homes? For free!

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
