Spent the day making cyanotype pictures

I ordered a cyanotype package from Silverprint and spent the day making some images. This time I used Fabriano5 HP paper paper which worked much better than last time. 

For this I used a photograph of Brooklyn Bridge I capture 
a year ago. The paper was coated just once.

Dandelions. Paper coated twice and 
then left for 15 minutes in the sun

Purchased a Toyo view camera

I have been a lucky owner of a Large format camera and three lenses, one Xenar 5,6/150, Symmar-S 5.6/210 and one Kreuznach 8/90mm. Tomorrow I will test it. Unfortunately the bellow has several small holes so that will need to be exchanged but for the time being I will try to cover it with some light proof cloth... hope that will work....
