Woodgrain week #1 Victorian Photo

I LOVE wood grain paper. I love wood grain paper of all kinds. In fact I realised recently I had rather a large number of sheets of the stuff. So I decided to get using them. Each day this week I am posting a LO with a different kind of wood grain paper.  Today I have the wood grain paper from the Maggie Holmes collection at Crate Paper.

The LO is about a photo we had taken at the Festival of History. There was a Victorian photographer who was taking pictures for free. We got in there early and had this taken. A seven second exposure, man with his head under a black cloth to focus and then the picture developed straight onto a metal plate - no negative and actually a mirror image of us.
