Over the past year or so I've been hand developing black and white prints at community darkroom Photo Chats at Chats Palace.  In a pleasing circularity, the images, which are portraits of the local area, will be exhibited in the autumn within the building itself. There's even one of Chats' (in the words of Pevsner) sober stone faced portico with Doric columns.

One of these did not make the cut..

So I spent a couple of hours at Chats Palace today with Peter from the darkroom, editing the set down, pairing them this way and that and deciding on a hanging order. They seem to work together, and lift each other, as a good family should.
