 Cyanotype...  I'd explain it to you, but your brain would explode.

. Am I getting smart with you? How would you know?

 I don't have an attitude problem. You have a perception problem

 My Reality Check bounced.

 On the keyboard of life, always keep one finger on the escape key.

Seriously now... hope no one is offended by the zingers I found

Cyanotype showed up on my menu for my Nikon Coolpix and the MadSnapper in me said so why not?  Of course I had no idea what it would look like, it turns out is is an old process that made things look like a purple/blue  back in the days of processing in a dark room.

This is an early process first introduced by John Herschel in 1842. It is still in use today, and is more commonly known as the blue-print process

Interesting effect, it does look very similar to cyanotype. I like the blue color it produced.

Love the keyboard of life!

But now I do, I think.
You are so full of information. LOL

Cyanotype is new to me! I think I'll explore the idea even though I don't have a Coolpix.

Thanks for explaining cyanotype. I really like the examples you showed. (The zingers weren't bad either!).
