Elephants is of course my longest running love affair... think I was one... at least felt like one this Sunday when I scraped my knee something fierce chasing my dog in the park! Anyway... the elephant is the same plate all through the 4 images.... I really am happy with it in black and white too.
Anyway... please visit www.mleeprints.blogspot.com for a look at Marissa's work, talk about mastering this technique! Thank you Marissa for being such an inspiration!
