I missed this because I was too busy watching Bradley Wiggins and his see through skin suit. I liked the back view best. He was wearing a jock strap as far as I could see. Phwar!
Do you have a skin suit turnipy?

I still have several skin suits. I had one on at the weekend as i'm doing a 50 mile charity ride, a mere formality to somebody like me.

Anyway, today ...

Wow I thought us holding them hurt their body by removing the pollen like colored powdery substance which comes off on your fingers.. I was told that that kills them.. I was always told to lightly cup them in your hand rather then to hold them with your fingertips!

Is that just an old tale or is their any fact to that old piece of advice?

My understanding is the fluff is what keeps them from being caught by spiderwebs and discourages birds from eating them.  Not much came off in my hand, and the moth flew away quite strongly.  It had been beating itself against my windows for a half an hour. 

I don't I was more damaging to it than my house. At least I hope I wasn't.

Yes I am sure you are right.. Isn't it odd how they do that? They are interesting flutter bugs.. Moth are! Quite a nice looking one!

The above bias-relief took 30 seconds on a computer rather than 30 minutes, or more, it would have taken in a wet darkroom.

The above bias-relief took 30 seconds on a computer rather than 30 minutes, or more, it would have taken in a wet darkroom.
I specialize in archival prints (for museums and collectors).
Spitting ink on a page is still not moving atoms with photons.
An ink jet print pales compared to platinum/palladium or Van Dyke print.
And longevity wise the ink jets don't come close either. 

Also I hand coat my own papers allowing me to do things that can't be done with a digital dark room such as printing on tissue paper.
I'm not going to knock digital photography though.  I use it all the time.
And its ascent has given me a niche market making truly archival prints since not that many people still work a wet darkroom.

Printed on stretched silk span tissue--this print is 4 feet tall.

You could have the best of both worlds. It is possible to have a film negative made from a digital image. So you could manipulate the image on a computer, have a film negative made from a digital image file, then use the negative to make an archival quality print in the wet darkroom. This new/old combo would permit infinite control over the image (on the computer) and could save on the cost of silver/palladium lost during experimental exposures which are no longer necessary because the dodging and burning takes place on the computer screen.

As for longevity a digital image could exist for as long as there are devices to display/print it, which is going to longer than the life of any print, (even a palladium one).

If you keep a palladium print dry it is as stable as the Lascaux paintings.
The digital information does not degrade but the medium it is on does.  CDs, DVDs, tapes, degrade one has to copy the information from one disk to the other to preserve the information. 

Most of my work is making wet prints of originally digitally captured images.
Although I still get an occasional emulsion negative, 99% have gone to digital capture.

They are reproductions made in the 1980's ...
