    LF Purity

    Just for fun, a matter of word association.

    I'm curious what first occurs to you when you hear the word "purity" in the context of LF photography.

    Careful! Before you reply, be aware that you may reveal more about yourself than you wish. ;^)

    Not sure why, but for me, it's the purity of the water I'm using to mix darkroom chemicals.

    What came to your mind?

    Also the pure air (so far) of Washington state's Olympic and Cascade mountains, in advance of this season's inevitable forest fires. Come mid and late summer, I can count on far subjects disappearing in the smoke and haze.

    I have never associated the word "purity" with large format photography - no idea why I would.

    Izaak Walton Hotel, Glacier Park, pre-season, sleeping with a window open. Heaven on earth.

    Virginity. The loss of which happens when the camera exposes its first image. Beyond that event... no purity.
