Inkjet print longevity ::

Last Memorial Day weekend, which was the last weekend in May, I put a print of my oldest stepdaughter on her grave site. She was killed in an auto accident in 2011. The print was part of a flower arrangement that was done specifically for her tombstone and was an 8x10 on Epson Premium Luster paper which had been laminated. I hadn't been down to the cemetery in a while and I decided to drive down yesterday morning. I had long been curious about just how long this print would last before fading began and I was pleasantly surprised to find that I could find no discernible fading at all.

I have long been a proponent of Epson printers, papers, and ink although I do occasionally print on Hahnemühle papers.

My Blogging Enthusiasm :::

I'm afraid that it has been pretty low lately, but I'm going to try to remedy that. Here is a photograph I shot this morning on my way to work.

I often drive by this pasture and barn and I've long wanted to photograph it. As I was driving to work just before 6 a.m. I looked over and saw the fog and low hanging clouds after last night's rains. I had to turn around and go back to catch this scene, but I'm glad I did. I learned long ago that a scene that deserves to be photographed should never be put off. More often than not that scene can never be repeated!
