I found some cheap Ilford photo paper and am playing with photograms in preparation for some Solargraphy. 

Back in ye olden days, prints were made by projecting developed film transparencies onto light-sensitive paper and then developing said paper into a print. However, with printers this is even more obscure than doing one's own film. The photo paper for this sort of things has other uses though, like the photograms I did here made by directly exposing the paper to light for extended periods of time. 

The really cool project is currently in the works though...
