«C'est l'heure que je préfère,
on l'appelle l'heure bleue
où tout devient plus beau, plus doux, plus lumineux
c'est comme un voile de rêve
qu'elle mettrait devant les yeux
cette heure bien trop brève
et qui s'appelle l'heure bleue...»

--Françoise Hardy, L'heure bleue (1970)

It's my favorite time of day
Twilight, «The Blue Hour»
Like a dreamy veil before your eyes,
it makes everything more lovely, delicate, luminous
It's a time that's too short and it's called
The Blue Hour...

This is my literal take on the expression, "blue hour", the "period of twilight each morning and evening where there is neither full daylight nor complete darkness." Here is a photograph of my favorite clock at the Musée d'Orsay, tinted in blue then aged for a nostalgic feel.

My collection of vintage cameras inspired me to try new techniques in my "digital" darkroom.

Using a background image taken through the viewfinder of my vintage Argus Seventy-five TLR camera, I blended my digital print to achieve this lovely TTV-inspired photograph one sees here.

This 8x8 photograph is printed on Fujicolor Crystal Archive photographic paper with a matte-lustre finish for wonderful quality that will last for years to come. It is matted using archival matting materials to further preserve the photograph and readily fit a 12x12 frame.

Your signed print will be packed and shipped with utmost care in a padded and water-resistant mailer via USPS (with Tracking and Delivery Confirmation Service).
