      Hi, Autumn,

      Can I ask you something about your Pt/Pd prints? I've just changed
      my method of doing the enlarged digital negatives, and wish I'd done
      it years ago. Do you not like Pictorico OHP much? If you have any
      time to talk about it, that is.

      Thank you,

      Lisa
