William Henry Fox Talbot invented his photogenic drawing paper during 1834 . This used Silver Nitrate and Sodium Chloride to make the light sensitive Silver Chloride. His early images were made using plants (he was also a Botanist) and pieces of lace before moving on to simple camera obscuras.  The image had to be fixed or stabilised otherwise it would fade as quickly as it was made. His early fixers were Sodium  Chloride (ordinary kitchen salt), Potassium Iodide and Potassium Bromide. These produced diferent colours.Talbots early images are rare and priceless things.  These images will fade over time if they are not shielded from light . This is photography at its most basic and is very enjoyable . I hope you like them.
