It seems as though I missed World Cyanotype Day which takes place on the last Saturday in September. I didn’t even know it was a thing but then again it seems every day is World whatever day. Apparently it started in 2015 by a lady called Judy Sherrod we created “shootapalooza.” I’m not going to … More Late to the Party (again…)
